Analysis / Bias
In review, The Next Web uses loaded words in their headlines and article such as this Spotify’s COVID-19 content warning is bullshit. Articles are usually sourced from credible media outlets such as NPR and VOX.
Editorially, they tend to favor the left as they report somewhat negatively on the policies of former President Donald Trump and the GOP. Another example of anti-conservative bias is this Robots don’t care what Josh Hawley thinks about masculinity.
