In review, The Olympian covers local news and national news with minimal bias. National and international news comes from McClatchy and the Associated Press, both of which are the least biased sources. Editorials and Op-Eds have left-leaning bias through loaded language that favors the left; for example, Sessions re-declares war on the 21st century. Further, based on a factual search, there isn’t evidence of The Olympian ever failing a fact check.
