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: The Economic Policy Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit American think tank based in Washington, D.C. that carries out economic research and analyzes the economic impact of policies and proposals. The EPI describes itself as a non-partisan think tank that “seeks to include the needs of low- and middle-income workers in economic policy discussions”. It is affiliated with the labor movement, and is usually described as presenting a liberal viewpoint on public policy issues. According to EPI, about 29% of its funding between 2005 and 2009 was supplied by labor unions and about 53% came from foundation grants. The Economic Policy Institute has a left leaning bias through political affiliation with labor and re-distributive economic policy. They report all information with proper sourcing and are generally factual. Based on a left political affiliation and factual reporting we rate EPI as Left-Center Biased. (D. Van Zandt 7/19/2017)
