These sources are generally trustworthy for information but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Analysis / Bias
Colorado Politics generally reports news with minimal bias and a focus on government and politics in Colorado. Headlines and articles use neutral language and report news factually. For example, in this article titled “Colorado’s Democrats and Republicans swap positions in state across two decades,” Colorado Politics presents a relatively balanced perspective on the changes in Colorado politics over the past two decades, highlighting both the Democratic and Republican parties’ shifts in power and the factors contributing to those changes.
In another article, they use neutral language in its headline, “Colorado delegation reacts along partisan lines to Biden’s State of the Union address.” The article presents quotes and reactions from politicians on both sides of the aisle without overtly taking a stance or expressing bias towards one party or the other.
Editorially, they present opinions that represent conservative and progressive views; however, more favor the left, such as this Conservative attack dog growls at Polis for mingling with single-payer advocates and OPINION | Act on climate change — and protect kids’ health. In general, news reporting is fact-based and balanced, while editorially, there is a left-leaning bias.
