Scoring

Veracity News reports two metrics on every outlet that we cover: the Bias Score and the Veracity Score.

The Bias Score uses data from Media Bias Fact Check, Ad Fontes, and AllSides. We combine all of those scores and set them on a scale of -3 (far left) to 3 (far right) with in the middle, representing the least bias possible.

The Veracity Score includes Bias Score data and adds factualness data. Imagine a 10 point score, where 5 points are awarded for lack of bias (so being biased loses points) and the other 5 are awarded for factualness (so being unfactual loses points).
