These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Launched in 2011, Democracy Chronicles is a news and opinion site that is mainly focused on global elections, and is run by Founder and Editor-in-Chief Adrian Tawfik.
According to their about page: Democracy Chronicles is a “non-profit dedicated to the all important effort to establish and strengthen democracy across the globe.”
In review, Democracy Chronicles use emotionally loaded words in their headlines such as “Is Trump’s Tax Bill Just Corporate 3 Card Monte?” and also in the body of the article “GOP Members of Congress gathered with the ‘Dictator In Chief’ on the White House’s South Lawn, to take a victory lap & ‘Kiss the Ring’. However, Everyone is mum about the $500B- $1.5T this Bill will cost over 10 years.” Democracy Chronicles stance on the Middle East is balanced as they portray from both perspectives. Story selection and the issues Democracy Chronicles support typically align with the political left and their articles are thoroughly sourced by utilizing credible sources such as “The Guardian, Al-Monitor, CNBC, NY Daily News, Freedom House“. A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate Democracy Chronicles High for factual reporting based on proper sourcing and left biased due to story selection and loaded words that favor the left. (M. Huitsing 4/10/2018)
