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: Studio News Network is a news source/blog that reports validated independent news stories (VIN’s) on government corruption and in particular police brutality and injustice. The website was founded by Jon Masters (Jonathan Spiel) who states on his about page: “One of the primary goals of this site is to expose injustice, to shine a cleansing, revealing light to help the public become better informed and enlightened in the understanding and defense of our inalienable constitutional rights as American citizens.”
In review, Studio News Network reports well sourced news reports of abuse by police and the infringement of 1st amendment rights of citizens. There is little use of loaded language and most reports are written with little political bias. The Left-Center bias designation is based on a more liberal perspective regarding police and social justice. We also rate Studio News Network High for factual reporting based on proper sourcing of information. (D. Van Zandt 12/31/2017)
