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.

Notes: Launched 1996, Fwweekly or Forth Worth Weekly is an alternative weekly newspaper that serves the Greater Fort Worth area of Texas. Lee Newquist is the new owner of Fort Worth Weekly and the editor is Anthony Mariani. According to their about page they cover a wide range of topics that they describe as “…from school contracting scandals to smelly environmental messes and the misdeeds of elected officials, from the doings of the city’s powerful elite to the region’s connections to terrorism.”
In review, Forth Worth Weekly publishes magazine-style stories typically focused on local arts, entertainment and culture. In their political articles, they utilize emotionally loaded headlines such as “What Does Our Silence Say? And “Frost Bite: Perry’s frozen gas tax hurts transportation, schools.” Further, Forth Worth Weekly uses credible sources such as Huffington Post, The Guardian and USA Today. A factual search reveals they have not failed any fact checks. Overall, we rate Fwweekly/Forth Worth Weekly as factually high and left-center biased. (M. Huitsing 1/30/2018)
