Liberal Mountain - Left Center BiasLEFT-CENTER BIAS

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.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: Liberal Mountain (LM) is an online news source run by Matt Mountain.  LM states, on their About page, that they are “…committed to fighting the fake news craze.”. In this they succeed fairly well. The articles on LM are factual, well sourced, and presented with a “just the facts” style much larger and better known publications and journalists would do well to emulate. LM also carries some news from the right, such as their article regarding Caitlyn Jenners work on LGBT issues within the GOP.

There is a slight liberal bias on LM, but it is only evident in the articles listed as Uncategorized, which appear to be more op-ed pieces rather than news articles. For the factual and straightforward reporting LM would be rated Least Biased, but the editorial content earns them a Left-Center rating. (D. Kelley 7/19/2017)

Notes 2: In reviewing Liberal Mountain I found left bias in reporting as most stories tended to favor the left and criticize the right. However, I agree with D. Kelley that all articles are extremely well sourced and factual. I would rate this source left biased based on story selection and political affiliation of the author. When combining the scores of both of our reviews this source remains left-center biased, but on the borderline of left biased. (D. Van Zandt 7/19/2017)
