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: The Intrepid Report is a news and opinion website with a left bias in reporting. The Intrepid Report has been around in some form since 1998 and always features independent authors. According to their about page they are an “independent, feisty, reader-supported alternative to the corporate news media.” This source features such notable writers as Robert Reich from The American Prospect Magazine, which also falls within our left bias category. Most articles are well sourced, but many are also straight up opinion pieces, therefore we designate factual reporting as mixed due to a variety of authors with differing opinions. While wording is not terribly biased, the story selection favors the left almost 100% of the time. In fact, in the 10 articles reviewed on the front page, every one was pro-left and anti-right. Due to political affiliation and biased story selection we rate the Intrepid Report left biased. (D. Van Zandt 7/20/2017)
