Analysis / Bias

In review, The newspaper presents news stories with minimal bias and always sources properly. There is minimal use of loaded language in straight news headlines such as this: Allegiant announces nonstop flights from Cedar Rapids to Nashville. National and World news is republished from sources such as the LA Times and the Washington Post. Although the newspaper endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016, it has endorsed Republicans every election since 1964. Therefore, the editorial bias typically favors the right.

In general, straight news reporting is minimally biased and editorials tend to favor the right.
