These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: The News Lens is an independent bilingual website in Mandarin and English based in Taiwan and Hong Kong which provides daily coverage of news around the globe and within Greater China. According to Joey Chung, co-founder and CEO of The News Lens “The News Lens, is an online news publication aimed at the under-40 crowd.” He also says he is using Taiwan as a “base to penetrate the audience of around 330 million Chinese millennials globally.” Article categories include Education ,Health, Politics, Lifestyle, World, Tech Business, Career and more.
The political content of headlines and articles use a slight right wing bias with loaded words such as: “Trump is China’s Nightmare American President” and Big Data & AI Harnessed to Perfect the Police State in China” The majority of articles are biased and politically-oriented against China, however they maintain factual reporting and use credible sources. Overall, we rate The News Lens as having an anti-China bias and a slight right-center bias when reporting on American news. (M. Huitsing 8/18/2017)
