In review, Act.TV presents news with a left wing bias as all articles and videos tend to favor the left. There is moderate use of loaded language in headlines and articles such as: If You Thought Paul Ryan was Bad, Meet the Racist Running for His Seat. Articles are generally well sourced and videos tend to come from other left biased sources such as MSNBC and CNN. A factual search reveals that Act. TV has either not failed a fact check or has not been fact checked. Overall, we rate Act.TV Left biased based on sourcing and story selection that favors the left as well has High for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 2/1/2018)
