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: Reader Supported News (RSN) is a news and opinion website founded by Marc Ash who was the original founder of the left-wing news site, Truthout.
Reader Supported News publishes news stories from primarily left-leaning sources such as Newsweek, Ecowatch, Think Progress, and Washington Post. Some of the sources used for republishing we have rated as factually mixed. Reader Supported News also publishes original news stories that typically favor the left through story selection and wording. An example headline with significant loaded language is as follows: Ignore The Twitter Twit & Go Strategic. A factual search reveals that Reader Supported News has not failed a fact check. Overall, we rate RSN Left biased based on story selection and Mixed for factual reporting due to using sources that have failed fact checks. (D. Van Zandt 1/14/2018)
