Google News moved further left in 2023, compared to previous year: news media watchdog finds

An analysis by the news media watchdog group AllSides Technology finds roughly 63% of stories last year on the Google News were from "left and left-leaning news sources." 

In the new analysis released Thursday, 937 stories were reviewed from Oct. 30 to Nov. 14, 2023. 

The group found the 2023 percentage was up from 61% in 2022. 

"Launched in 2006, Google News is one of the most popular news aggregation tools in the world," the group says on its website. "It has been scrutinized for allegedly suppressing right-leaning and conservative news and opinions while magnifying those on the left."
