Notes: PR Newswire is a distributor of press releases based in New York City. The service was created in 1954 to allow companies to electronically send press releases to news organizations. According to PR Newswire’s about page their network reaches nearly 3,000 newsrooms, like The New York Times, ABC News, BuzzFeed, and more. They send content to more than 550 news content systems like Moody’s, SmartBriefs, LexisNexis, and McGraw-Hill. Furthermore, their media portal PR Newswire for Journalists has more than 37,000 active monthly users. Primarily, PR Newswire collects press releases from companies and organizations and then republishes them without alteration. Although PR Newswire publishes press releases from left and right biased organizations they do not select or favor releases. Based on simply republishing press releases we rate PR Newswire as factual and least biased. (D. Van Zandt 7/26/2017)
