Analysis / Bias

In review, South Africa Today News uses loaded words in their headlines and articles that favor the BNP (far-right and fascist political party in the United Kingdom) politician Jack Sen who is known for anti-Semitic slurs. South Africa Today also promotes the Front National Party of South Africa, a far-right, white nationalist, secessionist party. South Africa Today republishes articles from credible sources such as The Conversation, but under the world news category, they also republish factually questionable sources like Sputnik. They also publish articles without any sourcing at all. Further, many articles on the website seem to be very pro-Russian with a fascination for Vladimir Putin.
