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: MIXED
World Press Freedom Rank: India 136/180

Notes: The Quint is an Indian digital newspaper based in India and was founded by Raghav Bahl who favors right wing politics according to the article “Reliance and right-wing politics gain a foothold in Raghav Bahl’s media empire”. The Quint covers topics ranging from politics, policy, entertainment, and sports.

According to Reporters Without Borders the media environment in India is threatened by increasing nationalism. The 2017 world press freedom ranks India at 136th out of 180 countries. The Quint has been accused of publishing unverified news according to Huff Post.

The Quint reports international news with low bias as they use credible mainstream sources such as NBC News. However, based on publishing an unverified claim we rate The Quint mixed for factual reporting. Overall, we rate this source as right-center biased based on ownership affiliation and mostly low biased when reporting USA and international news. (M. Huitsing 9/3/2017)
