Analysis / Bias
In review, Popular Resistance uses minimal loaded words and sources the information they are referencing. They often use credible sources, but occasionally they use sources that are considered far-left, such as World Socialists Website and TruthDig.
Editorially, Popular Resistance holds a strong progressive bias, often promoting worker’s rights such as this Chicago Nabisco Workers Join Strike In Four US States. They also show concern for climate change and social justice and oppose militarism, The Crimes Of The West In Afghanistan.

- None in the Last 5 years
Overall, we rate Popular Resistance as left biased based on the issues it promotes, which are all affiliated with the political left. We rate them Mostly Factual for factual reporting rather than High based on exclusively using left-leaning sources. (D. Van Zandt 8/16/2017) Updated (8/21/2021)
