- Overall, we rate InsideSources Mostly Factual for reporting rather than High due to not always aligning with the consensus on human-influenced climate change and Right-Center biased based on story selection that moderately favors the right.

Analysis / Bias
In review, InsideSources utilizes strong loaded words in both headlines and articles, such as “How the Trump Administration Is Siding With International Terrorists Over American Citizens.” However, they typically present both sides of political news, such as: “Deficits and Punitive Taxes: President Obama’s Latest Budget Looks a Lot Like His Past.” InsideSources usually use credible sources to support their information, such as Weekly Standard, Washington Post, and Congress.gov.
In opinion pieces regarding economics and climate change, InsideSources has a right-leaning bias and utilizes sources such as the corporately funded American Enterprise Institute, which does not always support the consensus of science regarding climate change. Some authors regularly downplay climate change and its impacts, such as this Consider Polar Bears: Cute, Iconic — and Surprisingly Abundant. This story does not align with the consensus that Polar Bears are threatened by Sea Ice loss.
