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 Entertainment Weekly Left-Center biased based on portraying Republican politicians in a more negative light. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing and a clean fact check record.

Analysis / Bias
In review, Entertainment Weekly covers movies, television and general entertainment with minimal bias such as this: See the best ’60s fashion from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Headlines typically reflect the content of articles and credible sources are used for reference. Editorially, EW does not directly cover politics, however they do publish entertainment news as it relates to politics. For example, they often publish video clips of late night TV hosts mocking politicians such as this: Trevor Noah and Jimmy Fallon perform dueling impressions of Trump smoking weed. A thorough review of political content demonstrates a more negative tone toward the right leaning politicians.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
