LEFT BIAS

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.

  • Overall, we rate BillMoyers.com Left Biased based on editorial positions that almost always favor the left. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting rather than High due to a lack of transparency with funding and sometimes relying on poor sources.

Funded by / Ownership

BillMoyers.com is owned by the nonprofit Schumann Media Center, Inc. that generally supports liberal organizations. There does not appear to be a source of revenue.

Analysis / Bias

In review, BillMoyers.com mostly publishes commentary that favors the liberal and progressive left. Articles and headlines often contain loaded emotional wording such as this America’s Dirty Divide: How Environmental Racism Leaves the Vulnerable Behind. The story is republished from the factually mixed Guardian. Other articles are written by reporters such as The Difference Between Yelling Fire and Setting One. For the most part, all stories favor the left and denigrate the right, and are reasonably sourced.

Editorially, all stories favor the left. However, during the 2020 election, we did find evidence of misleading information such as this Stamp Out the Trump Attacks on Our Postal Service! This was debunked here Postmaster General Defends His Actions In Acrimonious Marathon House Hearing. In general, the news is reported factually with a significant liberal/progressive bias.
