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: Founded in 1981, Health is an American magazine focused on women’s health. It was purchased by Time Inc. in 1991. The company now operates as a part of Time’s Southern Progress Corporation. The magazine’s topics range from diet to dealing with life issues such as relationships and stress.
In review, Health Magazine is not a hard science magazine. In fact, it is a magazine you will find in the checkout line of your local supermarket. A typical cover of the magazine will feature multiple articles on fad diets, anti-aging and natural cures. Here is a sample cover:
Health Magazine typically does not use loaded language and they usually source their information to mostly credible sources. Some of the claims made by Health Magazine are not fully supported with scientific evidence. However, we are not rating this source pseudoscience because most of the information is credible. We are just suggesting caution when attempting their diets or nature cures.
Overall, we rate Health Magazine borderline pseudoscience and Left-Center biased based on story selection and Mixed for factual reporting due to some claims that are not always supported by science. (D. Van Zandt 5/16/2018)
