Factual Reporting: MIXED

Independent Reporter is a news reporting blog with a left-wing bias in reporting. The Independent Reporter publishes current news stories with a left bias through wording and story selection. The headlines of articles are somewhat sensational, but typically match the contents of the articles. Overall, most stories favor the left and discredit the right. While we could not find an example of a failed fact check via the credible fact-checkers, we still deem this site as mixed factually based on some stories that present the facts in a misleading way.
