Your First Search
By default, we’re showing you the “Mostly Center” results. These are news sources that have some left/right bias, but are mostly center. For example, you will see results from Reuters and the Associated Press (least biased), but also the Washington Post (left-center) and the Washington Times (right-center). You can change the bias filtering using the tabs after your search results display.
Why Use This Search
So, a friend sends you a story that claims some outrageous facts. You try searching, but most of what you find is suspect, because you can’t tell if the site is just repeating the same info, or if it’s actually a credible site. Instead, use this search. This limits your search to specific sites that are ranked Highly Factual by Media Bias/Fact Check. Each site is tagged with it’s bias, allowing you to understand the viewpoint of the news source.
