Analysis / Bias
In review, while Paste Magazine is primarily a music and entertainment magazine it does have a political section that utilizes strong loaded words that are pro-liberal and anti-conservative such as this The 10 Worst Things Donald Trump Has Done in His Political Career. This story draws upon credible sources such as the New York Times and Politico.
Editorially, Paste is primarily an entertainment magazine, however, when covering politics they present information with a strong left leaning bias. In general, the news is factual and left-biased.
