Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: Founded in 1956, Quadrant is an Australian literary and cultural journal. Quadrant reviews literature, as well as featuring essays on ideas and topics such as politics, history, universities, and the arts. It also publishes poetry and short stories. According to their about page Quadrant “retains its founding bias towards cultural freedom, anti-totalitarianism, and classical liberalism.” In other words, they identify as conservative.
In review, Quadrant frequently uses loaded words in headlines and articles such as Burn, Climate Witches, Burn. This article is also one of many that questions whether climate change is influenced by humans. They have also been accused of creating scientific hoaxes. Quadrant usually sources their information, but sometimes uses poor sources such as Judith Curry. Essentially, all articles favor the right and conservative causes. Overall, we rate Quadrant Magazine Right Biased due to story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting for opposing the consensus of science and the use of poor sources. (D.
