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: HIGH
Notes: Established on June 15, 1999, The Taipei Times is the only printed daily English-language newspaper in Taiwan. It is owned by Liberty Times Group.
The Taipei Times publishes Taiwan News, World News, Business and Editorials. According to Reporters without Borders, media independence in Taiwan is on hold as they claim the main threat to media freedom comes from China, which has been exerting growing economic and political pressure on the Taiwanese media. However, freedomhouse.org indicates Taiwan’s media environment as one of the freest in Asia by 2016. They utilize minimal loaded words in their articles and they do present low biased coverage of USA news and they source very well. Example: Trump to ban transgender people from US military
The Taipei Times reports international news with low bias as well and maintains factual reporting and neutral words. We rate the Taipei Times high for factual reporting and a least biased news source. (M. Huitsing 8/17/2017)
