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.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Founded in 1986, The Sentencing Project is non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that works for a fair and effective U.S. criminal justice system by promoting reforms in sentencing policy, addressing unjust racial disparities and practices, and advocating for alternatives to incarceration.
In review, the Sentencing Project is a news and advocacy website that focuses on a fair U.S. criminal justice system. Headlines and articles have minimal loaded emotional language and all articles are properly sourced to government and credible media outlets. They also have a news feed related to the criminal justice system that directs to outside sources such as the Washington Post, New York Times and The Hill. A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate the Sentencing Project Left-Center biased and High for factual reporting based on proper sourcing of information. (D. Van Zandt 5/26/2018)
