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: Mongabay is a web site that publishes news on environmental science, energy, and green design, and features extensive information on tropical rainforests, including pictures and deforestation statistics for countries of the world. It was founded in 1999. Mongabay was also ranked as one of the top 15 environmental websites by Time Magazine.
In review, Mongabay publishes news and research related to the environment and conservation. There is minimal use of loaded language and all information is sourced properly. A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check. Mongabay is essentially a pro-science website, but due to strong environmental activism, we rate them Left-Center biased and High for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 3/18/2018)
