Analysis / Bias
In review, the Philly Voice covers local news, culture, entertainment, and sports through reporters. Articles and headlines use minimal loaded words such as this Philadelphia police to resume making arrests for nonviolent crimes the following pause due to COVID-19. This story is sourced adequately to The Hill. The website also covers politics with a left-leaning bias that frequently reports negatively on former President Trump; President Trump praises former Flyer Jeremy Roenick in wake hockey star’s NBC Sports firing.
Editorially, the Philly Voice leans moderately left, with most op-eds favoring the left and denigrating the right such as this: A message for the 47 percent of white Republicans bothered by hearing foreign languages. In general, news reporting is factual with moderate left-leaning editorial bias.
