These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
World Press Freedom Rank: New Zealand 13/180
Notes: Stuff is a New Zealand news website published by Fairfax Digital. Fairfax NZ is part of Australia’s Fairfax Media and Sinead Boucher is the CEO.
Although political censorship exists in New Zealand, it is limited. According to Reporters without borders, New Zealand ranks 13 out of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index.
Stuff covers a variety of news including “National, World, Business, Opinion, Sport, Entertainment, Life & Style.” Under “World” news they have a subsection dedicated to “Trumps America” news. Overall, Stuff uses neutral tone when reporting national political news, however when reporting USA news, such as “Is America heading for a second civil war?“ they have a left-center bias in word choices and have liberal social leanings in their opinion pieces. Therefore we rate Stuff Left-Center biased and highly factual in news reporting. (M. Huitsing 8/29/2017)
