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.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Commonweal Magazine is a progressive American Catholic journal of opinion, edited and managed by lay Catholics, headquartered in The Interchurch Center in New York City. It is the oldest independent Roman Catholic journal of opinion in the United States.
In review, Commonweal Magazine publishes news and opinion with minimally loaded language and proper sourcing to credible media. Although Commonweal is anti-abortion due to Catholic beliefs, they are progressive on other issues such as human rights, climate change, income inequality, etc. A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check. Overall, we rate Commonweal Magazine Left-Center biased based on holding a majority of positions that identify with the left and High for factual reporting based on proper sourcing. (D.
