Analysis / Bias

In review, News Rescue reports news summaries and commentary on Nigerian and international news. Articles and headlines often contain loaded emotional wording such as this DOOM: NIGERIANS REACT AS PIGEONS RELEASED BY BUHARI REFUSE TO FLY. They also report on US politics with negative views toward Democratic President Joe Biden such as this BACK TO DAYS OF US WARS AND INTERVENTIONS: BIDEN SENDS TROOPS INTO SYRIA and this TIME ADMITS 2020 US ELECTION WAS “RIGGED” BY THE CABAL FOR BIDEN, KAMALA VICTORY. Time Magazine’s report never mentions the word “rigged.”

News Rescue frequently promotes conspiracy theories regarding Covid-19 as well anti-vaccination misinformation. They also routinely source conspiracy website Zerohedge for stories. In general, story selection favors the right and sometimes is not factual.
