As people in the U.S. media prepare for the 2020 presidential election, their counterparts in the United Kingdom are clashing over the British Broadcasting Company’s radio coverage of that nation’s December 12 contest, which gave the Conservative Party a majority within the government.

AllSides, a media technology company that provides media bias ratings and balanced news across the political spectrum, conducted an audit of Google’s “Top Stories” section following the two mass shootings that occurred in Dayton, OH and El Paso, TX last weekend.
