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 Pluralist is a news and opinion website that covers politics, the media and culture. According to their about page: “The Pluralist covers the American contest of ideas. We break down the competing creeds that shape our politics and culture — and help explain what’s at stake. Forget sides. Our aim is to expand the conversation. Good ideas are worth the risk.”
In review, the Pluralist uses moderate loaded language in their headlines such as this: Trump’s Base Melts Down Over President Ordering Airstrikes Against Syria. The Pluralist sources all of their information appropriately using a wide variety of high factual left leaning and least biased sources such as the New York Times and Reuters. While news stories are fairly balanced in reporting more favor the left overall. A factual search reveals the Pluralist has not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate Pluralist Left-Center biased based on story selection that favors the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 4/15/2018)
