These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: The New Atlantis, founded in 2003, is a quarterly journal about the social, ethical, political, and policy dimensions of modern science and technology. The journal is published in Washington, D.C. by the social conservative advocacy group the Ethics and Public Policy Center in partnership with the Center for the Study of Technology and Society. The primary focus of The New Atlantis is Bioethics, concerning such issues as Stem Cell Research, Cloning, Assisted Suicide, among many others. They also report libertarian views about human enhancement and transhumanism, its contributors generally tend to question whether technologies like artificial intelligence, “friendly” artificial intelligence, and genetic enhancement are positive. Rather than this being a Pro-Science source, it is more opinion-based, although it is extremely well-sourced to mostly credible scientific information. The articles are very well written and present both sides of viewpoints, however, the general political affiliation of the publisher and the content is strongly right-center. Therefore, we rate The New Atlantis Right-Center Biased and High for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 9/14/2017)
