These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes). The reporting is factual and usually sourced. These are the most credible media sources. See all Least Biased Sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: According to Merion West’s about page they align themselves in the Hard Center while publishing critical commentary from both the Left and the Right. In reviewing the articles, Merion West does indeed break their articles down into Left, Hard Center, and Right. Further, these articles are always well-sourced and free of loaded language. In short, this is a very well written news source with in-depth articles. Although Merion West publishes articles that favor the right or the left, they are presenting both sides which is important for unbiased reporting. The articles written from the Hard Center perspective are mostly neutral, however, in reviewing 10 articles from this category 2 stood out as having a slight right biased political affiliation. This however was minimal and could be due to the reviewer’s bias on those issues. Based on factual reporting and covering all perspectives we rate this source Least Biased that leans slightly right.
