Analysis / Bias

Political dig utilizes loaded language and sensationalized headlines such as “NEWS‘F*cking Steve Bannon Is Taking Credit For My Election’: Trump Is Going Berserk Right Now, and they present a strongly left biased perspective with their coverage. Political dig typically sources to mostly credible information, however they sometimes use sources that we have rated mixed for factual reporting.

Overall, we rate Political Dig as left biased based on story selection and loaded language that favors the left. While they do source their information to mostly credible sources they do sometimes use sources that we have rated mixed, plus there isn’t any information about the authors, therefore we rate them mixed for factual reporting.
