These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes). The reporting is factual and usually sourced. These are the most credible media sources. See all Least Biased Sources.
Factual Reporting: *MIXED
Notes: SmartNews is a news curation application for Android and Iphone (IOS). SmartNews gathers news from a wide range of sources such as CNN on the left and Fox News on the right. They also source content from numerous Left-Center, Right-Center and Least Biased sources such as Reuters. Therefore, the bias of the individual story a person reads is determined by the source they curate from. Since SmartNews publishes content from both sides we consider them a least biased source. We rate them Mixed for factual reporting because some of the sources they curate have Mixed rating themselves. Again, this is due to the individual sources and not SmartNews. This is a handy app for keeping up with a wide variety of news. (D. Van Zandt 9/7/2017)
