April 2022 Independent Review: The New Yorker Retains Left Bias 

The New Yorker retained its Left media bias following an AllSides Independent Review in April 2022. The New Yorker displayed bias through story choice and slant

During the review, examples of left story choice included criticism of prominent right-wing figures such as Ginni Thomas and Mark Meadows. The New Yorker also failed to label analysis vs. news clearly. Therefore, in stories like the one about Trans Swimmer Lia Thomas, it is unclear what information is from other sources and what is the authors' analysis.

2014 Pew Research Study 

A 2014 Pew Research Center study looked at the magazine's consumers. It found "the clear majority of [The New Yorker's] audience (77%) is left-of-center. In fact, those with consistently liberal political values make up about half (52%) of its audience (compared with 16% of all respondents)." According to the study, The New Yorker is one of the most-preferred media outlets for liberals. (Source: The Washington Post)

About the New Yorker 

The New Yorker is an American magazine of reportage, commentary, criticism, essays, fiction, satire, cartoons, and poetry. It is published by Condé Nast. Started as a weekly in 1925, the magazine is now published 47 times annually, with five of these issues covering two-week spans.

Although its reviews and events listings often focus on the cultural life of New York City, The New Yorker has a wide audience outside of New York. It is well known for its illustrated and often topical covers, its commentaries on popular culture and eccentric Americana, its attention to modern fiction by the inclusion of short stories and literary reviews, its rigorous fact checking and copyediting, its journalism on politics and social issues, and its single-panel cartoons sprinkled throughout each issue.
