Analysis / Bias
In review, News and News curates from a wide variety of sources that features a bias meter at the top of the screen, which indicates the overall bias of the 70+ stories displayed. We have been watching this meter for two days and it does not stray from centrist. Further, the website does not list a methodology to explain how they calculate bias or how they average the weight across these 70+ sources. With that said, we decided to weigh it against Media Bias Fact Check’s ratings for sources. We reviewed 100 curated stories with many falling in the least biased category such as the Associated Press and Reuters. We took those away and compared left vs right leaning and found that approximately 60% were from left leaning sourced compared to 40% from right leaning sources. When factoring in the significant number of least biased sources we conclude that this is a least biased source on the left side of the spectrum. This does not differ greatly from their bias meter which for the last two days has been just barely left of center. In general, they curate factual news from sources that may be factually mixed such as Fox News and CNN.
The website also offers original content through their Insights tab, which generally features video editorial pieces such as this: Has Trump made the Iran crisis worse? These editorials are generally sourced and accurate, though perhaps a bit left leaning in bias.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate News and News Least biased based on balanced curated news with a slightly left leaning bias through video editorials. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting due to use of proper sources and a clean fact check record, however without disclosure of their bias calculation methodology we cannot rate them High due to a lack of transparency.
