Notes: Headquartered in Hong Kong, The South China Morning Post (also known as SCMP) is a Hong Kong newspaper focused on news, business, arts, tech and culture. The SCMP was founded by Tse Tsan-tai and British journalist Alfred Cunningham in 1903. On 5 April 2016 Alibaba Group acquired SCMP Group, including the South China Morning Post. is a subscription-only service and after being acquired by Alibaba Group, SCMP’s narrative became more pro-China, but still low in bias. However, when reporting local news The South China Morning Post publishes stories that are neutral in wording, while citing both sides equally. For example in this article the South China Morning Post covers both sides of the debate equally without interjecting opinions. When reporting U.S. news there is left leaning bias due to their viewpoint that correlates with U.S. left. Overall, we rate SCMP as factual in reporting, very slightly left leaning and least biased on a whole. (M. Huitsing 8/4/2017)
