Analysis / Bias
The Chronicle Herald delivers breaking news, opinion, sports, lifestyles, and more. In review, The Chronicle Herald has a right-center bias in reporting as many stories slightly favor the right. When reporting world news they typically use the Associated Press and with national news, they use the Canadian Press, which is similar to the AP. Opinion and editorial pieces also slightly favor the right and typically are light on sourcing. The Chronicle Herald also had to apologize and retract a story about immigrants that was unverified and subsequently picked up by numerous far-right websites and reported as factual news.
Overall, we rate The Chronicle Herald as Right-Center biased in reporting and Mixed factually due to publishing an unverified claim and poor sourcing. (M. Huitsing 9/15/2017) Updated (9/14/2018)
