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: Founded by Christina Smith, What Matters News consists of a small group of left-leaning bloggers who describes their mission as “We are committed to fighting fake news. We always use proper hyperlinked sourcing or provide audio/video evidence”. What Matters News uses loaded words in their headlines and their story selection typically favors the left. However, they are highly factual and their articles have hyperlinks to verifiable sources or they provide audio/video links. Overall, What Matters News presents news with a left wing bias in wording, story selection and with somewhat sensational headlines, however most of the news presented on this site is consistently factual and well sourced.
