Analysis / Bias

In review, the Ottawa Sun covers local news through the use of journalists and with minimal bias such as this: Ottawa man, 20, charged in Mar. 9 Dynes Road stabbing. National and World news is usually republished from the Associated Press and occasionally the Washington Post, among other credible sources. Editorially, the Ottawa Sun favors conservatives with articles negative toward Justin Trudeau such as this: KINSELLA: Trudeau has made a bad situation even worse. In general, straight news reporting is low biased with a slight rightward lean in story selection, however editorially there is a moderate right wing bias.
