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
Notes: AOL is an online magazine featuring a variety of content, from politics to lifestyle to video games. While they don’t carry a lot of political content, what they do carry is factual, well sourced and delivered with minimal bias. Despite a very slight left slant it is still well within the Least Biased category. (D. Kelley 3/3/2017)
Notes 2: In reviewing AOL I came up with a slightly different score. First, it must be pointed out that the majority of AOL news content is curated from other sources. The most common sources cited in the articles I reviewed were Business Insider (Left-Center), Reuters (Least Biased), AP (Least Biased) and ABC News (Left-Center). I rate their curated content to be low biased, with minimal loaded words and appropriately sourced. One the other hand, AOL produces its own news content that has a more editorial tone. The AOL produced content uses moderate loaded words and tends to favor the left in most stories. The articles are typically sourced to mostly left-center sources, and for the most part are rooted in fact. Based on their editorial type content I rate them moderate left-center and factually based.
