Daily Source Bias Check: CNN

CNN - Left Bias - Liberal - Democrat - Credible- ReliableFactual Reporting: Mixed - Not always Credible or Reliable


These media sources are moderate 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 information reporting that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.

  • Overall, we rate CNN left biased based on editorial positions that consistently favor the left, while straight news reporting falls left-center through bias by omission. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to several failed fact checks by TV hosts. However, news reporting on the website tends to be sourced adequately with minimal failed fact checks.

  1. I am amused at the survey results and that there are actually people who think that CNN is least biased to far right biased. These must be the hardest core of far, far, far left wing commies. That, or the demented POTUS and Psaki have stuffed the ballot box.

    They are a corporate Media Outlet; which means by definition they are not left or even left of center. Corporations, by there very nature, tend to be conservative and look to maintain the status quo; which is exactly what CNN is trying to do. They aren’t in favor of economic justice. They are vehamently anti-union and they are anti-fredom and anti democracy; all of which are key left wing values. To rate them as being left is a Joke. They are as far from left leaning as you can get. They are, in my opinion, a Right Wing Propoganda website just like MSNBC.

  3. Are you for real? Or just a trouble making troll? Amazing that you really think this. …and water is not wet.

  4. Just like Thanksgiving dinner, apparently every website is required to have one crazy welfare queen uncle on the prowl.
