Where does the Intercept fall on this? RT? Reason TV? Al Jazeera? Not to mention the countless YouTube news sources.
Huffpo is in the wrong place entirely. Definitely clickbait, and not necessarily liberal. Fox News does not meet as high standards as they say it does, even though it’s not clickbait. Also, NPR is no longer where it is on the chart, which is where it used to be. Same thing with Vox and Slate, although Slate was actually slightly further to the center. Vox started shitting the bed last year during primary season and now can’t stop crapping on itself.
They are definitely conflating lack of partisan bias with centrism. The true center is way to the left of either major party. Similarly, the phrases hyper-partisan liberal and hyper-partisan conservative don’t make sense. MSNBC is hyper-partisan Democrat which is not the same thing as hyper-partisan liberal. When the Democrats do not-so-liberal things, MSNBC is still behind the Democratic Party.
Wanting to deregulate everything and live in a Randian paradise is liberal. It’s classical liberalism.
Ah! So that’s where RT fits!
That is the one axis we actually care about. We can sort out ideologies later.
