Factual Reporting: VERY HIGH
Notes: The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is a federal agency within the legislative branch of the United States government that provides budget and economic information to Congress. The Congressional Budget Office is nonpartisan, and produces “independent analyses of budgetary and economic issues to support the Congressional budget process.” Each year, the agency releases reports and cost estimates for proposed legislation, without issuing any policy recommendations. There is a consensus among economists that “the CBO has historically issued credible forecasts of the effects of both Democratic and Republican legislative proposals.” We rate the CBO non-biased and highly factual.
