Grade composition
The overall rating is made up of the following individual ratings from independent third parties:
Ad Fontes Media12 +, 8 -
Ad Fontes Media, Inc. is a media watchdog organization based in Colorado that is best known for its Media Bias Chart, which ranks media sources based on political bias and reliability. We combine their ratings of individual articles and episodes to create a weighted average, with low-rated items increasingly weighted higher.
    Reliability (Weighted Average)
  • "Medium"
Media Bias/Fact Check15 +, 5 -
Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) is an American fact-checking website founded in 2015. It uses a 0-10 scale to rate sites on two areas: bias and factual accuracy. A source rated by MBFC with minimal bias gets 10 plus points. Maximum bias gets 10 minus points. The same principle applies to factual accuracy.
Wikipedia3 +
Wikipedia's reliability was often criticized in the 2000s but has improved over time; in the late 2010s and early 2020s, it was universally praised. Any positive mention of a source in the extract of a Wikipedia page in terms of credibility and quality gets a plus point, and vice versa.
Journalism Awards2 +
Journalism prizes are awards for excellent journalistic work in the period covered by the call for entries, which is usually one or two years. Sources receive one plus point for each journalistic award won that we track. We currently track up to three prestigious awards per country.
Fact Checkers
We primarily use fact-checkers affiliated with the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). We have linked to the International Fact-Checking Network fact-checkers' code of principles in the headline. For each failed fact-checker there is one minus point.
  • There are no failed fact checks to date.
Press Council Rulings
Press councils are national institutions of media self-regulation. Press councils have their own defined press code. Reprimands are issued in the event of a violation of the press code (e.g. for truthfulness, diligence, sensationalism, separation of advertising and editorial, personal rights). For each reprimand issued by a national press council, a source receives one minus point.
  • There have been no press council rulings against the source to date.
Most scientific publications, though not all, rely on some form of peer review or editorial review to qualify texts for publication. Sources mentioned in studies which rate media quality and/or reliability receive between 10 plus and 10 minus points.
  • There are no evaluations of studies available to date.

Quick Glance: House Refers Mayorkas Impeachment to Senate
  • House Republicans have sent two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Senate, initiating a trial where GOP lawmakers aim to criticize President Joe Biden's immigration policy.

  • Mayorkas, who assumed leadership at the start of the Biden administration, is the first Cabinet secretary to be impeached in nearly 150 years.

  • The Democratic-controlled Senate is expected to swiftly dismiss the charges without a trial or conduct a brief trial without a conviction.

  • House Republicans targeted Mayorkas to attack Biden's handling of the southern border, but lack the votes and concrete evidence to impeach Biden due to their slim majority.

Quick Glance: Johnson Proceeds with Ukraine Aid Bill Amid Hardliner Pressure
  • Speaker Mike Johnson announced he is sticking with his plan to put a series of foreign aid bills on the floor, including funding for Ukraine, despite facing significant pressure from hardliners.

  • The three-part supplemental package looks strikingly similar to the Senate’s bill, including a little more than $9 billion in humanitarian aid for Gaza and other conflict zones worldwide.

  • Johnson announced plans to pass separate bills to provide aid for Israel and Ukraine, but the final product is expected to be combined into one package sent to the Senate.

  • With Republicans holding a slim majority in the House, Johnson will likely need Democratic support to pass the foreign aid bills and safeguard his position if a motion to vacate is brought to the floor.
