Analysis / Bias
In review, New Left Review is a socialist-leaning magazine that presents in-depth, well-sourced reporting. Headlines and articles contain moderately biased wording such as this: RED FLAG OVER THE WHITE HOUSE? The website also promotes feminism and equal rights, which aligns with the political left. They further promote pro-science points of view when it comes to climate change, which also has been associated with the left. Editorially, this publication has never been a fan of conservatives such as this: CONSERVATIVES AND CORPORATISM. In general, this is a left-leaning website that endorses socialism and denigrates conservatism. Information, however, is well-sourced.
