Analysis / Bias

In review, Second Nexus reports news with a progressive left bias that utilizes moderately loaded emotional language in their headlines and articles such as this: READ: Alan Cross Tweets ‘Falwell’s Clearly Articulated ‘Two Kingdoms’ Theology [I]s the SAME Approach German Lutherans Took as Hitler Rose to Power’ and George W. Bush: Trump ‘Sorta Makes Me Look Pretty Good’. Many articles on Second Nexus source tweets and then provides opinionated commentary about the statements. When sourcing to other information they typically use credible sources such as the World Health Organization and National Journal. Editorially, most opinions come from a left perspective with support for the Environment, LGBT rights, and anti-conservative issues. In general, story selection almost always favors the left.

A factual search reveals one unproven claim.

Overall, we rate Second Nexus Left Biased based on story selection that consistently favors the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing of information. (10/12/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 1/3/2019)
