These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.

A factual search reveals they have not failed any fact checks. Overall, we rate TPM Left Biased based on story selection that favors the left and High for factual reporting based on proper sourcing and a clean fact check record. (7/26/2016) Updated (D.
