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.

According to Whois, the domain was purchased in May of 2018 and the website launched shortly thereafter. The Hill Reporter describes themselves as “an independently owned liberal news publisher. Our mission is to deliver factually correct news stories that resonate with a liberal demographic. We scour the web to report on breaking political stories that speak to the current political climate in the United States. We are a liberal team of writers. The news we choose to cover is decidedly liberal in nature.” In short this is a very left leaning website.
The Hill Reporter was founded by three individuals, James Kosur, formerly an editor at Business Insider, and brothers Ed and Brian Krassenstein, members of the “#Resistance” to President Donald Trump.
