American Council on Science and Health - Right Center BiasRIGHT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation.  See all Right-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: This source is known to be funded by corporations and tends to lean toward anti-environment issues.  Though not scientifically wrong they exhibit a bias in favor of businesses.  From Wiki: The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) is a controversial nonprofit (501(c)(3)) advocacy organization, founded in 1978 by Elizabeth Whelan, PhD. It describes itself as a “consumer education consortium” focusing on food, nutrition, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, lifestyle, the environment and health, but others have accused it of being biased in favor of industry.
