Analysis / Bias

NOWnews Today uses some loaded language in their local reports but maintains factual reporting, such as in this article: Lu Shaye Questions the Sovereignty of the Former Soviet Union, Ukrainian President’s Adviser Criticizes Absurdity. This story is sourced from the Central News Agency.

Editorially, NOWnews Today mostly aligns with the left as evidenced by this op-ed: Today’s Editorial / Taiwan’s epidemic war is also a humanitarian war? In general, story selection and op-eds favor the left, while the news is mostly factual due to some false claims.
