These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: OpEdNews is an open progressive forum for opinion and news. Because each individual author is wholly responsible for the content she or he submits, veracity varies with the individual writer and it’s entirely up to readers to assess journalistic quality and bias. There is no firewall between biased opinion and well-sourced analytical reporting. Volunteer editors moderate the posts for bad taste and seek to discourage libelous and slanderous content. Posts the editors like get headlined on the front page. Frequent contributors may earn the trust of the publisher and bypass editor pre-screening to post directly. Spirited and thought-provoking discussions often follow articles as comments. (R. Shreve 3/4/2017)
