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: MIXED
Notes: Medium is an online publishing platform developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, and launched in August 2012. It is legally owned by A Medium Corporation. The platform is an example of evolved social journalism, having a hybrid collection of amateur and professional people and publications, or exclusive blogs or publishers on Medium and is regularly regarded as a blog host. We really are not sure where to place this source. Medium has a variety of writers from many different political perspectives. We sampled 10 top stories and 6 out of 10 leaned left. That doesn’t mean it represents the entirety of the site. We gave this source a mixed factual reporting rating because many authors on Medium are not journalists. (5/14/2016) Updated (7/8/2017)
