In review, Peacock Panache consistently publishes news and opinions that strongly favor the left through both story selection and strongly loaded emotional wording such as these: Tomi Lahren Promotes “Straight Pride”, Defends Far Right Extremists and Trump: Making the Know-Nothing Party Great Again. While these stories are both strongly left biased in content, the information contained in the articles is properly sourced to credible media outlets such as The Guardian, The Hill, Esquire, and Newsweek.
Editorially, Peacock Panache typically advocates for progressive policies such as LGBTQ Rights, Women’s Rights, Civil Rights, and Environmentalism. Further, they frequently report negatively about the Trump administration and the Christian Right, such as this: Rejecting Science: Trump’s Long-Lasting Legacy.
