These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: VERY HIGH
Notes: Back Channel (BC) is a technology reporting site that reports primarily on the internet and social media. The articles on the site are factual and well sourced. What political news BC carries is tech-centric as well, such as the article concerning Ajit Pai, President Trump’s pick to head the FCC. While the reporting on BC is solid there is, however, a slightly left bias in the overall tone. Much of that bias is inherent in the subject matter, but it doesn’t account for all of it. For this reason Back Channel is rated Left Center. (D. Kelley)
