These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in 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 conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: According to their about page: “The Bipartisan Policy Center is a non-profit organization that combines the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. BPC drives principled and politically viable policy solutions through the power of rigorous analysis, painstaking negotiation, and aggressive advocacy.”
In review, the Bipartisan Policy Center features an equal number of Democrat and Republican members. However, their policy leans right as they favor free market capitalism in policy selection. For example, they have been criticized by a former member who claims the organization is beholden to corporate interests. Bipartisan Policy Center also favors drilling and continued use of fossil fuels. According to RightWeb, BPC is also hawkish militarily and has connections with the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation. However, according to Open Secrets BPC gave significantly more money to democratic candidates in 2018. BPC does not use loaded language and all articles are properly source.
Overall, we rate BPC Right-Center biased based on political positions and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 5/6/2018)
