Analysis / Bias

In review, The Irish Times is considered a liberal (regulated market) newspaper that reports news about Ireland and the world. Local news is covered through journalists with minimal loaded words such as this Council approves demolition of one of Dublin’s biggest churches. This story is appropriately sourced. Irish Times political news favors social liberal causes such as this: Saoirse McHugh selling her Green vision to rural Ireland.

International news occasionally uses loaded words, sometimes directed at former President Donald Trump and other times at the USA Democratic party such as this Fragmented Democrat moderates inch towards death. In general, The Irish Times holds a left-leaning editorial bias and is factual in reporting.
