Fact/Myth

Fact/Myth - Left-Center BiasLEFT-CENTER BIAS

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: Fact/Myth is a very new website to the fact checking genre. Is fact checking a genre now? Regardless, Fact/Myth sources everything and is very accurate in their claims. However, they do use loaded words to describe conservatives such as Donald Trump. For example in this article: Donald Trump has a lot in Common With Tyrants, Classically Speaking they build the case to compare him to ruthless dictators. While they did a great job of sourcing, it still is a stretch to compare Trump after 60 days in office to Hitler, which to their credit they do disclaim. With that said, this article was very deeply researched and effective. It seems the opinion of the author may lean left, but the meat of the facts is dead on. We rate them Left-Center for bias, but high for factual reporting and sourcing. This is a good source that we will keep our eye on and hopefully move to least biased if they change their language in articles. (3/31/2017)
