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.

Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: Who.What.Why is an investigative journalism website run by award-winning journalist Russ Baker that has a left-wing bias in reporting. The content of headlines and articles use minimal/moderate loaded words. Within articles they cite mostly credible media sources, however, there are instances where they publish conspiracy type stories such as the possibility that the Boston Marathon Bombing was a false flag operation. In general, most articles favor the left and are well-sourced. Therefore, Who.What.Why is rated mixed for factual reporting based on some promotion of conspiracies and left-biased in story selection.
