Analysis / Bias

The uscourts.gov website provides information and news regarding the Federal Court System. For example, the website has a section for learning about the Federal Courts, a section dedicated to learning about the judges, another describing services and forms, statistics and reports, rules and policies, and the ability to look up court cases via PACER.

To review bias, we look at the Judiciary News section for story selection balance and wording. Articles and headlines reviewed typically do not contain emotional language such as this Just the Facts: Revocations for Failure to Comply with Supervision Conditions and Sentencing Outcomes and Bankruptcy Filings Continue Steady Drop. All information is properly sourced. In general, uscourts.gov is an informational website with minimal bias.
