With fake news, fact checkers, and other social media, it makes one’s head spin as to figuring out which news source reports fact, opinion, or fiction. Ideally with enough time in reading multiple news outlets, one can make a more informed decision.
But why do we need to do that just to get the information? Enters Ad Fontes Media, a news watchdog organization. The Ad Fontes rates news outlets on their publications’ political leaning (left to right) and content reliability (from facts to fictions) in a Media Bias Chart.
Obviously the Media Bias Chart is somewhat subjective as it is compiled by analysts at the Ad Fontes. But at least, it provides a reference so that you don’t have to spent countless hours figuring out which source to trust.
Do you know how reliable are your news sources?
