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: According to the Maine Beacon about page: “Beacon is a website and podcast created by the Maine People’s Alliance.” The Maine People’s Alliance is a nonprofit grassroots community action group dedicated to social, racial, and environmental justice. Maine Beacon covers various topics including caregiving children, clean energy, climate change, corporate influence, democracy, drug policy, economy.
The content of headlines and articles use minimally loaded words and often quote left-leaning and government sources that are credible. We rate Maine Beacon high for factual reporting and left-center biased based on the progressive political issues they report on and support. (M. Huitsing 8/17/2017)
