July 2021 Editorial Review: Lean Left Bias
NPR’s fact-checking element has a Lean Left bias rating, according to a July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review by AllSides editors on the left, center, and right.
NPR was reliable in citing sources and mainly used objective language. However, we found significant evidence of Lean Left bias in story choice. NPR focused much of its fact-checking on the political right instead of the left. Specifically, it monitored former President Donald Trump closely.
