These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: Nap-Sack bills itself as an alternative social media site open to the world at large to voice their opinions on anything; social and political issues, science, spiritualism, etc. In this it largely succeeds as there are numerous options for visitors to start petitions, comment on the blogs and start or join discussion groups. The blogs on the site were a mixed bag, running the gamut from left bias political commentary, to UFO’s, to spirituality. Other than the blog commentary, Nap-Sack is a-political as it encourages visitors to speak their mind regardless of their political and social views. They also offer links to a variety of news sources from Russia Today to Reuters. Nap-Sack, as it is a social media site and doesn’t pretend to be anything else, does not easily fit in any of the usual MBFC categories. It is Pro-Science in some regards, Conspiracy-Pseudoscience in others, and somewhat Questionable as well. It earned a Left Bias strictly from the political content of the blogs. While I wouldn’t recommend Nap-Sack as a news source I do applaud their effort to provide an open forum for the world to speak out. (D. Kelley)
