These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes). The reporting is factual and usually sourced. These are the most credible media sources. See all Least Biased Sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: According to their mission page: “The Institute for Women’s Policy Research advances women’s status through social science research, policy analysis, and public education. IWPR conducts and communicates research to inspire public dialogue, shape policy, and improve the lives and opportunities of women of diverse backgrounds, circumstances, and experiences. We are the leading think tank in the United States applying quantitative and qualitative analysis of public policy through a gendered lens.”
In review, IWPR is an evidence-based source that does not use loaded words and presents information with low bias. All information presented is well sourced to credible media and government statistics. IWPR’s main focus is on income inequality between men and women and minorities. They also advocate for stronger reproductive rights, through access to abortion and contraception. A factual search reveals that IWPR has never failed a fact check. Overall, we rate the Institute for Women’s Policy Research Least Biased due to lack of loaded language and High for factual reporting based on evidence-based sourcing. We place them on the left side of least biased due to the left-leaning policy issues for which they advocate. (D. Van Zandt 3/20/2018)
