    Because you never read sources... you look at the link, hover over and if it is not cnn or msnbc confirming the delusions then you cry and say "i can't read that because they are bad people" or some other childish excuse.

    IMO, the chart is off a bit. For instance, Motherjones and MSNBC are listed as printing fair opinion pieces. Nope.

    LEFT BIAS

    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.



    I also disagree with the premise that AP, NBC, etc. are "Neutral" in their reporting of the news.

    They are also listed in the liberal column. Are you claiming liberals cannot be fair in their reporting?

    I think we are all hard pressed to find any media outlet that is non-biased these days. My point is that the chart is not correct.

    The AP, Retuers, McClatchely, Bloomberg, etc...are neutral. You don't see editorial content in their articles.

    Not on the list, you are free to show a link showing it is a far left site and that Josh Marshall is a no talent hack.
    Here, I did it for you:

    Factual Reporting: HIGH
    Notes: Talking Points Memo (or TPM) is a liberal web-based political journalism website created and run by Josh Marshall, a journalist, liberal blogger and historian. It debuted on November 12, 2000. TPM has liberal bias in story selection and produces some very credible journalism. They almost always source to credible information. (7/26/2016)

    You are far too nice...

    This chart is absurd, the only things in relatively appropriate positions are Reuters, AP, AND AFP.

    Placing the MSM sources as central reporters of fact... That's laughable. Maybe 20 years ago, but they had their slants further left / right.

    Also, how do they equate bias and accuracy? You can report facts and not remain objective about them.

    Bloomberg leans left but publishes factual information.

    LEFT-CENTER BIAS

    These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal 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 liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation.


    I can't find anything on McClatchely.
