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.

Analysis / Bias
NewsGru primarily publishes financial news about crypto-currencies and related information. They also cover general news and politics. NewsGru rarely uses loaded language in their headlines and articles such as this: North Korea reconnects to South Korea, reopens line of communication. However, they poorly source information as they do not use hyperlinking when sourcing to outside information. Typically, they utilize quotes, which is not appropriate for a web-only publication. When covering politics, NewGru moderately favors the left: Americans aiming to escape Donald Trump can move to Canada.
Overall, we rate NewsGru Left-Center biased based on story selection that moderately favors the left and Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing methods and a failed fact check. (D. Van Zandt 7/11/2018)
