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: MIXED
Notes: The Fifth Column is a news and opinion website that features very well written journalism that is sourced. Occasionally The Fifth Column publishes stories that are bordering on conspiracy. They also occasionally publish information that goes against the consensus of science, but on a whole the majority of their reporting is evidence based. Good source if used with caution.
