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: HIGH
Notes: According Rantt Media’s about page the principles that guide them are: “That coverage is always dictated by context, and not by clicks. That there is a fine line between being objective and being complicit, and that our job in the fourth estate is to never be the latter. That we must sell the truth as ferociously as those whose aim it is to mislead the people sell their lies.”
In review, Rantt Media is a website that features a variety of writers mostly covering political news. Most stories tend to favor the left and are critical of the right. There is moderate use of loaded language in headlines such as: Fox News Is Gaslighting Their Viewers Into Authoritarianism, however the wording within articles is less loaded. While the stories may favor the left, there is excellent use of sourcing within each article. Rantt Media typically uses mainstream or official Government sources that are highly factual. A factual search also reveals they have not failed any fact checks to date. Overall, we rate Rantt Media moderately Left Biased based on story selection and High for factual reporting due to excellent sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 3/1/2018)
