Analysis / Bias

In review, National Journal provides news, research and information to politicians, lobbyist and corporate government affairs teams. Unfortunately, National Journal’s content is behind a paywall and therefore we rely on third party assessments of bias. For example, Allsides lists National Journal as “center” based on over 1800 votes from community members.  On the other hand Skyline College Library lists them as Conservative. When we last reviewed National Journal in 2016, we determined they were a least biased source and high for factual reporting. We do not have enough evidence to change the rating and therefore this is a low confidence review.
