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: The Moscow Times (MT) is an English-language weekly newspaper published in Moscow, with a circulation of 35,000 copies. It is distributed for free at places frequented by English-speaking expatriates such as hotels, cafés, embassies, and airlines. It is also available by subscription, but it is not available at newsstands. The newspaper is very popular among foreign citizens residing in Moscow and English-speaking Russians. The Moscow Times has been called a “militant anti-Putin paper, a digest of the Western press with extreme bias in covering events in Russia.” MT generally covers Western news with a left-center bias in reporting and wording. They are usually factually sourced. (7/31/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 4/25/2017)
