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 Sciencing Left-Center biased based on pro-science story selection and wording that moderately favors the left. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing and a clean fact check record.

Founded in 2006 (domain registration), Sciencing is a website that publishes science information as well as educational information and news.
Under the news tab, there is science-related news that is indeed pro-science as it supports the consensus on disciplines such as GMO’s, Vaccines, and Climate Change. Although they report news factually and with proper sourcing, there is a left-leaning bias in story selection and wording that sometimes is emotional.
While each of these three stories above is true and properly sourced, the wording is not neutral as would be expected of a pure pro-science source, therefore we rate Sciencing Left-Center biased.
