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: The DeSmogBlog, founded in January 2006, is a blog that focuses on topics related to global warming. The site describes itself as “the world’s number one source for accurate, fact based information regarding Global Warming misinformation campaigns.” DeSmogBlog opposes what it describes as “a well-funded and highly organized public relations campaign” that it says is “poisoning” the climate change debate. DeSmog provides news regarding policy and corporate actions against climate science. They also have a list on their website that shows individual climate change deniers as well as groups such as the Heartland Institute. While Desmog sources to credible scientific information we rate this source left biased based on its political stance regarding climate change. This is an excellent source for researching who is funding climate science denial. (D. Van Zandt 5/11/2017)
