Analysis / Bias

In review, This Magazine publishes original news stories from a progressive left perspective. Headlines and wording often contain moderately loaded emotional language such as this: We need to stop pretending there’s no Islamophobia crisis in Canada. Although this story is well-written and thorough, it completely lacks hyperlinked sourcing.

Editorially, This Magazine favors issues related to the left, such a LGBTQ rights, Climate change, and pro-Education. Further, they often report negatively on conservatives and positively on progressives, in which they criticize Trudeau for his lack of keeping progressive promises.
