These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Russian News Agency TASS is a major news agency in Russia, founded in 1902. Tass is the largest Russian news agency, and the fourth largest in the world after Reuters, the Associated Press (AP) and Agence France-Presse (AFP). Tass is owned by the Government of Russia. TASS has a very strong pro-Russian bias, especially as it relates to news regarding the Ukraine. When reporting non-Russian news they report with minimal loaded words and factually source their information. Editorially, they have a right of center bias. (D. Van Zandt 2/16/2017)
