These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by appealing to emotion or stereotypes). The reporting is factual and usually sourced. These are the most credible media sources. See all Least Biased Sources.
- Overall, we rate the rate Meme Policeman on the right side of least biased based on favoritism for a Libertarian perspective that is balanced by proper sourcing and a clean fact check record. However, we rate them mostly factual due to a lack of transparency.

Analysis / Bias
At the time of this review in June 2021, the Meme Policeman is inactive, but the site still lives with archival information. In the past, MP did an excellent job of deconstructing memes from both the left and the right. The articles are factual, well-sourced, and well-written. There is a slight overall right bias both in tone and in the conclusions drawn from the source data, but the factual, well-sourced articles and overall quality of the reporting far outweigh the mild bias and earns MP a rating of Least Biased. In general, they favor a libertarian perspective but keep their bias in check.
