Analysis / Bias
In review, The Palm Beach Daily News reports news concerning the Palm Beach County area. Local news is covered through journalists with minimal bias in wording and story selection such as this: Solution proposed for Palm Beach’s Clarke Avenue erosion. The paper rarely covers national news and when they do they use USA Today or Gatehouse Media articles. The website also has a section dedicated to news about President Donald Trump. The reporting on President Trump tends to lean negative such as this: Trump-linked property-tax bills in Palm Beach County scrape $1.5M, but why isn’t Mar-a-Lago’s value higher?
Editorially, The Palm Beach Daily News, in recent history has endorsed primarily Democratic candidates. Further, a review of op-eds indicates a reasonable balance, however more favor the left. In general, they report news factually with a left-leaning editorial bias.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
