Anderson Cooper Bias Rating

Anderson Cooper - Left Center Bias - Liberal - Progressive - Credible

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. See all Left-Center sources.


Bias

  • Political Views: Frequently reports negatively on conservatives such as Donald Trump calling him an “Obese Turtle.”
  • Scientific Views: Supports action on climate change, reports accurately on Covid-19.
  • Social Views: Anderson Cooper supports Gay marriage. 

Failed Fact Checks

  • None to date

Summary

  • Overall, we rate Anderson Cooper Left-Center Biased based on editorial positions that moderately favor the Left. Anderson Cooper’s career has been spent working for Left-Leaning media outlets. We also rate him high for factual reporting due to a clean fact check record.
