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 Emerging Europe Left-Center biased based on editorial and political positions that slightly favor the left. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting, rather than High due to a lack of transparency with ownership and limited sourcing of information

Emerging Europe’s about pagedoes not mention when and who founded it and who funds it. Emerging Europe’s readership is geared towards business owners and investors. The editor-in-chief is Craig Turp-Balazs, however this is not prominently displayed. Further, this website completely lacks transparency as they do not disclose ownership or funding.
Emerging Europe does not openly disclose ownership and funding. Andrew Wrobelis the “founding partner”of Emerging Europe and they list these companies as their partners. Revenue appears to be derived from advertising, however there may be other sources of funding that is not disclosed.
A factual search reveals they have not been fact checked by an IFCN fact checker.
Overall, we rate Emerging Europe Left-Center biased based on editorial and political positions that slightly favor the left. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting, rather than High due to a lack of transparency with ownership and limited sourcing of information. (M. Huitsing 3/8/2020)
