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.

Notes: According to the Stat about page: “STAT delivers fast, deep, and tough-minded journalism. We take you inside science labs and hospitals, biotech boardrooms, and political backrooms. We dissect crucial discoveries. We examine controversies and puncture hype. We hold individuals and institutions accountable. We introduce you to the power brokers and personalities who are driving a revolution in human health.” STAT is produced by Boston Globe Media. In my review of this site, I feel that STAT delivers on its mission. Articles are well researched and direct, without use of loaded words. There is a very slight leftward bias in story selection, but not enough to move to the Left-Center category. (D. Van Zandt 5/6/2017)
