Analysis / Bias
In review, The Lily uses moderate loaded words in their headlines and articles. For example, Muslim women sound off on social media about being period shamed during Ramadan. Each article is well sourced to credible media. Most of which fall on the left side of the political spectrum, such as Mother Jones and the Huffington Post, to name a few. Story selection almost always favors the left but is factually based. A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.
