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
World Press Freedom Rank: UK 33/180
Notes: Founded in 1886, by volunteers including Peter Kropotkin and Charlotte Wilson, Freedom News and Journal is a London-based anarchist news site and journal published by Freedom Press, bi-annually. According to their about page they describe themselves as “We are socialists, disbelievers in property, advocates of the equal claims of all to work for the community as seems good — calling no-one master, and of the equal claim to each to satisfy as seems good to them, their natural needs from the stock of social wealth they have laboured to produce …We are anarchists, disbelievers in the government of the many by the few in any shape and under any pretext.”
Freedom News and Journal covers the topics under categories Analysis, Features, Reviews, National, World news, Interviews, Editorials and Satire
In review, the content of the editorials and headlines use emotionally loaded words such as: “Polish Government’s War on Women” and “Trump’s UK visit and the royal wedding offer avenues for mass action“. Freedom News generally quotes left leaning credible sources such as New York Magazine, Washington Post, The Guardian, New York Times, Daily Beast, and the The Independent, as well as right-center biased sources such as the London Evening Standard and local sources such as hopenothate.org.uk. A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate Freedom News Left biased based on far left political positions and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (M. Huitsing 5/23/2018)
