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.

World Press Freedom Rank: Colombia 129/180
Notes: Launched in March 2008, Colombia Reports is headquartered in Medellin Colombia. Colombia Reports is a news site that provides news about Colombia and is published exclusively in English. Colombia Reports was founded by Adriaan Alsema. According to their about page it defines itself as “Colombia Reports is not-for-profit, because we want to be independent from commercial interests as much as we want to steer clear from political interest.”
Colombia ranked 129 in 2017 on the World Press Freedom Index. According to Reporters Without Borders (RSF) “Colombia continues to be one of the western hemisphere’s most dangerous countries for the media.”
Colombia Reports provides national news and analysis regarding issues in Latin America. They utilize minimally loaded words in their articles and occasionally use credible sources such as narconews.com (editorially left leaning) or derechos.org (an International human rights organization with their primary focus being on Latin America). Typically, Colombia Reports sources either by heavily quoting or linking to their own site, which has a left-center bias. For example, this article mentions a lot of statistics without a single link for verification. Colombia Reports has a least biased tone regarding US news.
Overall, we rate Colombia Reports Left-Center biased based on left leaning sources utilized and Mixed for factual reporting due to a lack of linked sources on many articles. (M. Huitsing 4/16/2018)
