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: MIXED
Notes: 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.
