Analysis / Bias
In review, BestLife publishes articles covering fashion, lifestyle, and politics. They typically publish articles with headlines such as “A Disney World Employee Is Rating Celebrities Based on How Rude They Are” and “20 Hard Truths About Penis Size: Everything You Need to Know About How You Measure Up.” They also publish news articles such as “President Biden Just Predicted When Things Will Return to Normal.” BestLife often sources to themselves, but they also use sources such as CNN, cdc.gov, Science Daily, and sites like oakastrology.com.
The website also publishes listicle articles with clickbait headlines: “17 Facts About Men’s Bodies Women Probably Don’t Know.” Further, they publish articles promoting horoscopes which are considered a pseudoscience “The Best Holiday Gifts for Every Zodiac Sign in 2019, According to Astrologist.” Although they lightly promote pseudoscience through horoscopes and use clickbait type headlines, most information supports science consensus and is minimally biased.

Overall, we rate BestLife Least Biased based on balanced story selection and minimal editorializing. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting rather than High due to the occasional promotion of pseudoscience. (M. Huitsing 5/8/2021)
