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.

Notes: Pacific Standard, formerly Miller-McCune, is an American magazine, published bimonthly in print and continuously online by the nonprofit Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media and Public Policy, headquartered in Santa Barbara, California. Pacific Standard primarily covers the topics of Economics, Education, Environment and Social Justice. Its target readers are “influentials” who read The Economist, The Atlantic, Mother Jones, and Wired. In review, all articles are very well sourced to credible media or pro-science sources, such as this article. There is minimal use of loaded language, however most stories favor the left based on topic selection such as social justice and pro-environment issues. Overall, we rate Pacific Standard as Left-Center biased and high for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 9/13/2017)
