Analysis / Bias
In review, Uproxx is almost exclusively an entertainment and culture website; however, they do occasionally publish politics-related news. When covering politics, they present with a left-leaning bias through the use of loaded words such as this: Stormy Daniels Showed Jimmy Kimmel Which Mushroom Looks Most Like Donald Trump’s Junk, and this: Brett Kavanaugh’s Former Classmates Are Coming Out Of The Woodwork To Call BS On Him About His ’80s Behavior. Although the headlines use strongly loaded wording, the content of the articles is sourced properly. In general, when it comes to politics, Uproxx has a left-leaning editorial bias.
