Founded in 2017, Source Politics is a liberal news and opinion website that does not disclose ownership or authors of articles. The about page states “Source Politics features opinion, political, and social commentary on the news. We are not in the business of breaking news. We source information from others that have reported on it first. We also are not to be considered an unbiased news source. Progressive/liberal/moderate Democrats comprise the majority of the bloggers that write for Source Politics, and their views and opinions typically lean that way.” The website does not list an editor, which demonstrates a lack of transparency.
