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: MediaFile, founded in 2016, is a student newspaper of George Washington University. MediaFile news categories consists of politics, international, business, technology, and opinion. MediaFile state on their about page that they are “editorially and financially-independent project from the students at The George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs (SMPA)”. They also state they are “D.C.’s singular source for media news and criticism, boasting a close look at Washington-based reporting as well as the industry as a whole.” Julia Arciga and Scott Nover is Editor-In-Chief.
In review, most stories published on Mediafile tend to slightly favor the left through story selection. On oped’s they use minimally loaded headlines such as “Reporters Must Adapt to the Era of Constant Scandal”. In general, MediaFile sources to verifiable and credible left leaning media sources such as the New York Times and Washington Post. However, in order to make points they sometimes source to factually mixed sources such as The Blaze and Fox News. Overall, we rate MediaFile as left of center biased through story selection that favors the left and high for factual reporting. (M. Huitsing 1/12/2018)
