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.

Factual Reporting: HIGH
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
Notes: According to their about page, The Lily was the first U.S. newspaper by women. It was devoted to the interests of women and became a forum for women’s rights activism in the 1850’s. Fast forward to 2017 and The Lily was revived by the Washington Post.
The current Lily covers topics such as Self-Esteem, Empowerment, Motherhood, Health, Sex and Art.
In review, The Lily uses moderate loaded words in their headlines and articles. For example: Muslim women sound off on social media about being period shamed during Ramadan. Each article is well sourced to credible media. Most of which falls on the left side of the political spectrum such as Mother Jones and the Huffington Post, to name a few. Story selection almost always favors the left, but is factually based. A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate The Lily Left Biased based on story selection that usually favors the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 6/2/2018)
