Globe and Mail - Right Center Bias


These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias.

These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Analysis / Bias

The Globe and Mail reports local news through the use of field journalists, while World news is primarily syndicated via the Associated Press and Reuters. News headlines and articles contain minimal loaded words and are well sourced. However, editorials do utilize sensational headlines: No Justin Trudeau Shouldn’t go Grovelling to Saudi Arabia. Editorially, The Globe and Mail has a history of endorsing slightly more conservative candidates than liberal. 

A factual search reveals that The Globe and Mail has a clean IFCN fact checking record.

Overall, we rate The Globe and Mail slightly Right-Center biased due to editorial positions and High for factual reporting based on proper sourcing. (7/27/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/10/2018)
