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: The News Literacy Project (NLP) is, as their About page states, “a nonpartisan national education nonprofit that works with educators and journalists to teach middle school and high school students how to sort fact from fiction in the digital age.” While focused primarily on programs and projects for students, NLP also carries some news content. Those articles, as might be surmised, also centers around sorting fact from fiction in both print and online media. The reporting in NPL’s articles are fair and balanced, with links to credible sources and material. NLP has a broad range of contributing journalists, including such notables as Stephanie Zimmerman (ABC News) and Bryan Gruley (Bloomberg). The News Literacy Project, due to its work for students, and its dedication to truth in journalism easily earns a Least Biased rating. (D. Kelley 10/5/2017)
