I chose to investigate The Wall Street Journal because the WSJ is more of a business-based newspaper which I am interested in. According to the media bias chart, the Wall Street Journal has a bias score of 4.89. This means that the Wall Street Journal is more right leaning than left leaning. I was not surprised by this number because the reports from the Wall Street Journal always seem to be more in favor for republicans than democrats. The Wall Street Journal has a score of 46.06 for reliability. This score means that the Wall Street Journal is mainly a mix of fact reporting as well as an analysis of the facts. This score seems very appropriate because the Wall Street Journal does not simply report the facts, it also provides a commentary on the facts. Even though the Wall Street Journal is more right leaning, I still do think it is a pretty good source, you just have to keep in that bias may play a role in what you are reading.
