The Patriot-News


The Patriot-News - Left Center Bias - Liberal - Democrat - CredibleFactual Reporting: High - Credible - Reliable


These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal 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 liberal causes.  These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: The Patriot-News was the largest daily newspaper serving the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania metropolitan area. The Patriot-News has consistently won top state journalism awards in competition with Pennsylvania’s largest newspapers. In 2012, P-N reporter Sara Ganim and staff were awarded a Pulitzer Prize for breaking the story of the Penn State sex abuse scandal. In our review, we found minimal bias in reporting and well-sourced information. We rate this paper just barely left of the center due to a left-leaning editorial stance. (D. Van Zandt 5/9/2017)
