Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC News), founded in 2015, is an independent online media outlet. MBFC News is dedicated to educating the public on media bias and deceptive news practices.

MBFC News’ aim is to inspire action and a rejection of overtly biased media. We want to return to an era of straight forward news reporting.

Funding for MBFC News comes from site advertising, individual donors, and the pockets of our bias checkers.

MBFC News follows a strict methodology for determining the biases of sources. Dave Van Zandt is the  primary editor for sources. He is assisted by a collective of volunteers who assist in research for many sources listed on these pages.

MBFC News also provides occasional fact checks, original articles on media bias and breaking/important news stories, especially as it relates to USA politics.

MBFC News was founded by Dave Van Zandt in 2015.  Dave studied Communications in college and over the years has focused on personal research in media bias and the role of media in politics.  Dave is a registered Non-Affiliated voter who values evidence based reporting.
