  1. What we see here is, in fact, biased analysis of media bias. This website is clearly run by people who reflect the ideology of the Clinton wing of the Dem Party, to a degree that can mislead the public (particularly on issues related to the anti-Russian campaign). This is a significant weakness in what could be a useful information resource.
