Analysis / Bias

In review, Vanity Fair primarily covers culture, fashion and current affairs. They occasionally report on politics with the use of very strong emotionally loaded words such as this: TRUMP LOSES HIS MIND IN 60-TWEET TIRADE AFTER FIREFIGHTERS ENDORSE BIDEN. This story is properly sourced to well known media outlets such as the New York Times. Editorially, story selection almost always favor the left and they routinely report negatively on the right.

A factual search reveals they have failed one fact check.

As part of a federal lawsuit, U.S. President Donald Trump admitted criminal wrongdoing and said or argued to the effect that “My crimes can’t be investigated while I’m president.”FALSE

Overall, we rate Vanity Fair Left Biased based on editorial positions that always favor the left and Mostly Factual in reporting, rather than High, due to a failed fact check. (10/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 9/25/2019)
