American Public Media - Left Center BiasLEFT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal 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 liberal causes.  These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 43/180

Notes: American Public Media (APM) is the second largest producer and distributor of public radio programs in the United States after NPR. APR produces content for NPR such as A Prairie Home Companion and the national financial news program Marketplace.

In review, like NPR, American Public Media does not use loaded words and all information is sourced correctly. Specifically, they use BBC as their primary news source, which is highly credible with a slight leftward bias in story selection. Overall, American Public Media is Left-Center Biased based on story selection that slightly favors the left, but they are always well sourced and factually accurate. (D. Van Zandt 2/23/2018)
