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.
- Overall, we rate DCReport at the end of left-center bias and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing.

Analysis / Bias
In review, The DCReport has a left-center bias in reporting choices and occasionally uses loaded words in the headlines such as this: Trump Fiddles As The World Burns … And Drowns, Dries And Dies. This website has a clear anti-Trump bias but sources all information correctly. In the whole, the majority of stories on this website favor the left, but not overtly.
A factual search reveals the DCReport has never failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate DCReport at the end of left-center bias and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (5/11/2017) Updated (D. Van Zandt 05/31/2020)
