Analysis / Bias
In review, Queerty primarily covers lifestyle and entertainment news; however, they also cover politics with a strong left-leaning bias. There is significant use of loaded language, and almost all stories favor the left. An example story is this: These hilarious memes prove Donald Trump is definitely the most “stable genius.”
In 2021/2022, they continue to favor the left with stories such as this Jewish Republican who hates gay people and takes money from Nazi enthusiasts announces Senate run. They generally report the news factually and with a left-leaning bias as they always have.
