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: HIGH
Notes: Autostraddle is an independently owned online magazine and social network for lesbian, bisexual, and queer women (cis and trans) as well as non-binarypeople. The website is a “politically progressive queer feminist media source” that features content covering LGBT and feminist news, politics, opinion, culture, arts and entertainment as well as lifestyle content such as DIY crafting, sex, relationships, fashion, food and technology.
In order to formulate a rating for this site we looked at the political news section. AutoStraddle uses loaded emotional words in some headlines, however the information contained within the articles is always well sourced to mostly mainstream media outlets such as the New York Times, The Atlantic, etc. The majority of the articles were anti-right wing and align with the issues progressives support. Overall, this is a left biased source based on story selection and factual in reporting. (D. Van Zandt 8/19/2017)
