Analysis / Bias

In review, StepFeed publishes stories with sensational headlines such as “Egyptian singer arrested for music video with a banana,” “The average Arab breast size is either ‘A or B cup’… here’s a breakdown.” However, they utilize credible sources in their political news such as Newsweek, Reuters, Times of Israel, and occasionally factually mixed sources such as RT news, The Sun, and Daily Mail. When covering political news stories, StepFeed slightly favors the left through story selection and wording.

StepFeed has moved to a Newsletter format that we are choosing not to subscribe to. This is a low-confidence review from years past.

Overall, we rate StepFeed Left-Center biased and Mixed for factual reporting based on poor sources. (M. Huitsing 11/20/2017) Updated (07/14/2023)
