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
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 43/180
Notes: The Times Herald is a daily newspaper based in Port Huron, Michigan. The paper is part of the USA Today Network and Michael Eckert is the Editor of the paper.
The Times Herald covers Port Huron local news, national news as well as news headlines and stories from around the world. The paper is subscription based and only 5 articles are free.
In review, The Times Herald poorly sources their opinion pieces. They publish articles with emotionally loaded language such as: “Trump right to impose tariffs on flood of steel imports.” Most opinion pieces favor the right such as: “After a year of Trump, Democrats are delusional”, “Beltway media needs to take a deep breath. Fake Trump stories hurt you.” However, they present the opposite view as well “I wish I had faith in president – Trump makes it impossible.” In total, more opinion pieces favor the right. Local news reporting is usually well sourced and many news items are syndicated from the least biased USA Today.
Overall, we rate The Times Herald Right-Center biased based on the publishing of right leaning opinion pieces and High for factual news reporting due to proper sourcing and syndication through USA Today. (M. Huitsing 3/29/2018)
