Wikileaks - Right Center BiasedRIGHT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in 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 conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: WikiLeaks is an international non-profit organization that publishes secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources.  Julian Assange, an Australian Internet activist, is generally described as its founder, editor-in-chief, and director. Although it is believed that WikiLeaks publishing of classified/secret material is authentic they have been accused of promoting conspiracy theories against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party of the United States (See Wikipedia).  So, while the material dumps are unaltered and not biased they have demonstrated a political agenda through the information they choose to dump, which some believe tends to favor Russia.  Further, The National Intelligence Council has found evidence of Wikileaks collaborating with Russian Government sponsored media outlet, Russia Today. Recently reports have surfaced that Julian Assange had direct e-mail contact with the Trump campaign. While we can’t say the information Wikileaks dumps is not factual, we can state that there is at least a right of center bias in whom these leaks tend to benefit. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting based on selective leaks that result in spin. (11/19/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 11/17/2017)
