Analysis / Bias
The Chronicle Herald has a right-center bias in reporting as many stories slightly favor the right. When reporting world news, they typically use Reuters, and with national news, they use Postmedia publications, which lean right.
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. Despite that news, reporting is usually accurate and holds a slight conservative bias.
