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: Truthdig is a news website that provides a mix of long-form articles, interviews, and blog-like commentary on current events, delivered from a politically progressive point of view. Truthdig has a left wing bias in what they choose to report and the words they use, but the articles are generally well written and reasonably sourced. Truthdig won the Webby Award in 2013 for Best Political Site. Further, a factual search reveals they have not failed any fact checks. Overall, we rate Truthdig Left Biased and High for factual reporting. (11/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 4/12/2018)
