Analysis / Bias
Newser aggregates and curates news stories from other sources and summarizes them into short, easy-to-read articles. Headlines reflect the article’s content and use minimally loaded language such as this Biden Sending Thousands More Troops to Europe. Source selection derives from credible news wires such as the Associated Press, Reuters, and AFP, as well as major sources, the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
Editorially and politically, more stories favor the left and denigrate the right such as this After Graham Balks at Pardons for Rioters, a Trump Slam, and This Is the Way to Interview Trump. In general, more stories favor the left and come from credible sources.
