While the majority of the stories on Verified Politics are based in fact, they are written and weighted to a liberal viewpoint, with sensationalist headlines and heavily biased reporting. As with many similar sites on both the left and the right Verified Politics only barely escapes being labeled a Conspiracy site by the grain of truth at the core of their stories.
