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.
Overall, we rate AV Club Left-Center Biased based on story selection that occasionally favors the left. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to a clean fact check record.
