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: According to the FStv about page: “Free Speech TV is a national, independent news network committed to advancing progressive social change. Reaching over 40 million US television households, they bring viewers an array of daily news programs, independent documentaries and special events coverage. Daily programs, include Democracy Now!, The Thom Hartmann Program and The Stephanie Miller Show. All shows on Free Speech TV have a left wing bias and may have guests who are not factual. We do not rate sources based on talk shows though. We look at the news they report. Their two primary news shows are Democracy Now! and France 24. Democracy Now! has a left wing bias in reporting, but is considered factual. France 24 is considered a left-center source by our methodology, but also factual. Overall, for news reporting we rate FStv as left biased, but factual in reporting. (D. Van Zandt 7/30/2017)
