New Europe - Left Center BiasLEFT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias.  They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes.  These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: Launched in 1993, New Europe is a weekly news and analysis newspaper, and their main focus is reports concerning European Union institutions: the European Commission, European Parliament, and Council of Ministers. Their headquarters are in Brussels, Belgium. Basil Coronakis founded the New Europe (newspaper), and served as its Editor and CEO until 2008. The current editor of New Europe is Alexandros Koronakis.

New Europe state their mission as “Pro-European, with faith in the European Project, but not blind to the faults of the European structures and our mission is to foster transparency, democracy, dialogue, and debate.”

In review, New Europe utilize local sources such as Romania Insider when their article or analysis is about Romania or any other country that we have no way of verifying the credibility.

They use minimally loaded language in their headlines “Why Romania could be next” and typically, they use large quotations without providing links to their sources. Such as : “As reported by Romania Insider, the president also said he had not yet spoken with Laura Codruţa Kovesi, head of the Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA), or other chief prosecutors about the justice laws. The justice minister should do this, Iohannis said.” Further, New Europe also utilizes credible sources such as AP, Council of Europe , and Bloomberg.

When it comes to US politics their word choices are anti-Trump, such as “Europe’s far-right welcomes Trump’s Muslim immigration ban.”

Overall, we rate New Europe Left-Center biased due to word choices and High for factual reporting due to credible sourcing. (M. Huitsing 12/22/2017)
