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: MIXED
Notes: Electronic Intifada is a news publication and educational resource focusing on Palestine, its people, politics, culture and place in the world. Electronic Intifada has a very strong Pro-Palestinian bias in report choices and does not always cover both sides of the story. However, they are mostly factual in reporting due to proper sourcing to credible information. We did however, find an instance where Politifact rated a claim Pants on Fire. Electronic Intifada then attempted to refute Politifact’s claim. Based on a disputed fact check we rate this source Mixed for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt)
Notes 2: The Electronic Intifada (EI) is a Chicago based publication founded by Ali Abunimah, Arjan El Fassed, Laurie King, and Nigel Parry. EI reports on current news regarding Palestine, primarily the Israeli occupation, and is Pro-Palestinian in its reporting and editorial stance. Looking past the obvious bias, the articles on EI are well written, factual, and well sourced. Despite the quality of the writing, however, the Pro-Palestinian slant of EI earns it a Left Bias rating. (D. Kelley)
