Decided to look into the methodology of the latest edition of The Media Bias Chart®. To determine each outlet's bias and accuracy, they didn't even try to have an objective measure of factual accuracy. Instead, they got a panel of 3 people on Zoom—1 "left"-winger," 1 centrist, and 1 right-winger—to rate how far left or right and how accurate they think the article is. The scores they give are AVERAGED to give a final score. This is not a reliable metric off of which to base media criticism

If you average scores from people on the left, right, and center, who would have thought centrist outlets would get the highest scores!

I also like how Pod Save America is seen as significantly more left-wing than most other outlets, including The Intercept and Democracy Now.
