These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal 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 liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.
Overall, we rate Sapiens Left-Center biased based on editorial positions that favor the left. We also rate them Pro-Science and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing and a clean fact check record.

Founded in 2016, Sapiens is a digital magazine covering anthropology. According to their about page the “mission is to bring anthropology—the study of being human—to the public, to make a difference in how people see themselves and the people around them. Our objective is to deepen your understanding of the human experience by exploring exciting, novel, thought-provoking, and unconventional ideas. Through news coverage, features, commentaries, reviews, photo essays, and much more, we work closely with anthropologists and journalists to craft intriguing and innovative ways of sharing the discipline with a worldwide audience.”
The website provides a staff page that indicates Chip Colwell is the Editor-in-Chief.
When first reviewing this site I felt it would belong in our pro-science category as almost everything is science-based. However, Sapiens also publishes a lot of political content that falls to the left of center.
