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: Progressive Liberal is a “progressive” news website. Although it’s not clear who owns Progressive Liberal from its about page, according to a Buzzfeed article titled “Inside The Partisan Fight For Your News Feed”, Progressive Liberal is owned by a company called Income Store, which currently operates conservative and liberal websites. The article states: “Income Store launched six partisan news websites, five of which are conservative and carry names such as AmericanConservativeHerald.com, AmericanDailyPatriot.com, and MyRightAmerica.com. The lone liberal site is ProgressiveLiberal.net.”
In review, Progressive Liberal typically sources to credible sources such as PNAS.org, The New York Times and Politico, however they also source to factually mixed sources such as CNN and Fox News. In their headlines they use emotionally loaded language such as ”What Is It About Our President That Makes Your Skin Crawl?” and “New Study Reveals The True Motivation Of Those Who Support Donald Trump.” Story selection always favors the left.
Overall we rate Progressive Liberal left biased based on story selection and factually mixed due to use of some poor sources and strong emotional language that can be misleading. (M. Huitsing 5/4/2018)
