These sources consist of legitimate science or are evidence based through the use of credible scientific sourcing. Legitimate science follows the scientific method, is unbiased and does not use emotional words. These sources also respect the consensus of experts in the given scientific field and strive to publish peer reviewed science. Some sources in this category may have a slight political bias, but adhere to scientific principles. See all Pro-Science sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Medical Daily is a medical and nutrition news website published by Newsweek. According to their mission statement: “Medical Daily determines coverage based on relevance, clinical significance, and editorial integrity. We give no priority to commercial considerations, and will always clearly distinguish between factual content, commentary, and opinions to avoid misleading readers with institutional propaganda and speculation.” In reviewing this website this is a fringe Pro-Science source. Almost all articles are grounded in science, however on some issues they do publish information that goes against the consensus of science. For example, in one article they report about Jenny McCarthy’s anti-vaccination crusade and while they did not endorse it, they also did not condemn it as pseudoscience. They take the same position with GMO, giving an equal platform to GMO doom studies. Since they report both sides and are not actually endorsing the non-consensus we are placing this in pro-science, but barely. (D. Van Zandt 7/27/2017)
