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.

Notes: iNews is a British newspaper that is printed in a compact format and launched on 26 October 2010. iNews is headquartered in London, UK, and published by Johnston Press, which is one of the largest media groups in the UK. iNews used to be part of the group that published The Independent. The current editor of iNews is Oliver Duff. In the 2017 UK general election, The Newspaper chose not to endorse any political party. In their manifesto, they say “Britain’s future won’t be decided by editors, media owners, or big political donors, but by you.”
In review, iNews reports news with minimal bias using credible media sources such as Reuters and the NYT. However, they do use left-leaning loaded language both in their headlines and articles when discussing social issues and inequality such as : “Race audit reveals ‘bleak picture’ of inequality in British society.” iNews also has a left-center position editorially with their lack of support for Brexit. Overall, we rate iNews Left-Center biased based on editorial bias and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing of information. (M. Huitsing 10/10/2017)
