These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: Launched on 2018, Syriana Analysis is an alternative news website focused on reporting news pertaining to Syria.
Syriana Analysis is based in Baden Württemberg, Germany and the founder is Kevork Almassian, who claims to be a Syrian Journalist. According to their about page: “Syriana Analysis is pro-secular and anti-religious fundamentalism.” Mr. Almassian describes himself as a Syrian Social Democrat on Twitter, but not much else is know about Mr. Almassian outside of the fact he is the co-founder of a Youtube channel called Syriana TV, where they publish analytical videos regarding the Syrian conflict.
In review, Syriana Analysis utilizes some credible sources such as The Guardian, however at the time of this review most of the material on the site are Youtube videos rather than articles. While these videos may be factual, it is difficult to verify as the analysis is the opinion of one person.
Overall, Syriana Analysis has a pro-Assad view (The Arab Socialist Bath Party – Syria Region), therefore we rate Syriana Analysis Left biased due to their story selection and pro-Assad view and mixed factually due to poor sourcing and opinion based commentary. (M. Huitsing 5/4/2018)
