These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: First Post is a news and opinion website based in India. First Post’s about page states Jaideep V. Giridhar as Deputy Executive Editor and the site is part of Network 18. First Post publishes stories focusing on politics, sport, business, technology and entertainment. First Post’s wiki page claims their political stand as left leaning due to merging with the Indian edition of Forbes. While covering USA political news they provide links to their sources, which are credible mainstream media such as Bloomberg, NY Times, WaPo, and BBC, however they also utilize strong loaded words in their headlines and articles that leans left, such as: “Donald Trump: An incredibly indecent man, a poor orator and a failing president”. Overall, we rate First Post High for factual reporting and Left Biased. (M. Huitsing 9/7/2017)
