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.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: AlterNet is a liberal activist news service and a project of the non-profit Independent Media Institute that Launched in 1998. AlterNet has very strong left wing bias through report choices and strongly worded headlines such as: The F Word: The Craven Right Wing Is Now Smearing Teenage School Shooting Survivors. Some articles are sourced to other mixed factual sources and may need to be fact checked. AlterNet is listed on the Fort Liberty hoax website list. We wouldn’t go so far as to call this a hoax website, but some articles are certainly questionable. Overall, we rate Alternet far left biased and mixed for factual reporting.
