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.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: The Burning Spear Newspaper, known as the “Voice of the International African Revolution,” is a print and online newspaper published by the African People’s Socialist Party and affiliated with the African Liberation Movement. The paper is the oldest Black Power newspaper in existence and has published without interruption since the 1960s. In review, there is minimal to moderate use of loaded words in headlines and articles that favor the left. The Burning Spear sources articles appropriately and is generally factual, however there is strong left bias in story selection that favors socialist policy. Overall, we rate The Burning Spear left biased based on political affiliation and high for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 8/26/2017)
