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
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 43/180
Notes: According to a press release: “Knowhere, a San Francisco and London-based news publication that uses machine learning to write unbiased coverage of the day’s biggest stories. Knowhere’s technology scours the internet, evaluating narratives, factual claims and bias in reporting, by outlets as varied as the New York Times and Breitbart, to inform three “spins” of every controversial story: left, impartial, and right, or positive, impartial and negative.”
Knowhere was launched with “$1.8M in seed funding. Investors include CrunchFund, Day OneVentures, Danhua Capital, Struck Capital and Abstract Ventures.”
In review, Knowhere presents daily news stories written as Impartial (without loaded wording – covering both sides fairly), Left and Right leaning. They also provide links to other sources of varying bias that are reporting the same story. The impartial stories are dry and factual as one would expect, while the right and left leaning interpretations of the story are more colorful and unbalanced. The concept of the site is unique and serves to educate media consumers of the difference between biased (spinned) media reporting and that which is not. Overall, we rate Knowhere Least Biased based on impartial reporting and coverage from both sides as well as High for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 4/12/2018)
