Analysis / Bias

In reviewing this site we found that they do indeed fact check well and use proper sourcing to validate their checks. Typically, a fact checker would be rated least biased, however in this case Factbox.TV demonstrates a left-center bias due to fact checking primarily right wing claims. While the checks themselves are accurate, there is a clear selection bias that leans strongly left. We rate Factbox.TV left-center biased based on selection and highly factual based on sourcing. (D.
