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 information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate Liberation News Far-Left Biased based on the promotion of progressive socialism. We also rate them Mostly Factual rather than High due to the one-sided hyper-partisan nature of their information.

Liberation News is a socialist print newspaper that appears irregularly and a website that delivers the news. Liberation News calls for a “socialist revolution in North America and the world to end the dictatorial power of the wealthy, for a redistribution of the wealth, and for a planned economy run to meet human and environmental needs.” According to their about page, “Our mission is to link the everyday struggles of oppressed and exploited people to the fight for a new world.”

Analysis / Bias
Liberation News clearly states on their about page their mission, “We are united in our belief that capitalism—the system in which all wealth and power are held by a tiny group of billionaires and their state—is the source of the main problems confronting humanity today. It must be replaced by socialism, a system where poor and working people have power and the wealth of society is used in a planned and sustainable way to meet people’s needs.”
Editorially, all articles and information favor a socialist perspective such as this Karl Marx’s Theory of Exploitation and this Passing the LGBTQ Equality Act is within reach — but only if we fight for it. When it comes to sourcing, they use a mix of Pinknews, Human Rights Watch, and the Washington Post. They are reasonably sourced from credible media outlets. In general, they report news mostly factually and with a strong socialist’s left bias.
