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 Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a New York City-based, non-profit international environmental advocacy group, with offices in New York City, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Bozeman, Montana, and Beijing, China. Founded in 1970, NRDC today has 2.4 million members, online activities nationwide, and a staff of about 500 lawyers, scientists and other policy experts. The organization states that it seeks sustainable policies from federal, state and local government and industrial corporations. Overall, the Natural Resources Defense Council presents news with minimal loaded words and always sourced to factual content. They do however, have a left bias based on political positions as it relates to the environment. Based on minimal word bias and a left political affiliation, we rate this source Left-Center biased.
