AllSides strengthens our democracy with balanced news, diverse perspectives, and real conversation.

We expose people to information and ideas from all sides of the political spectrum so they can better understand the world — and each other. Our balanced news coverage, media bias ratings, civil dialogue opportunities, and technology platform are available for everyone and can be integrated by schools, nonprofits, media companies, and more.


The AllSides Mission

Strengthen our democracy by freeing people from filter bubbles so they can better understand the world — and each other.

Media Bias Ratings

We provide Media Bias Ratings for nearly 600 media outlets and writers, so you can easily identify different perspectives. Learn how AllSides rates media bias, or learn about the different types of media bias.


Balanced Issues, Diverse Perspectives.

Understand how the Left, Right and Center think differently about various issues. Browse our Red Blue Dictionary to reveal differences in perspectives on hot-button words, like climate change, racism and more. Go even deeper with our balanced Topics and Blog.


Civil Dialogue

Our Mismatch program and civil dialogue partnerships provide opportunities for respectful conversations with people across divides. Listen, be heard, and converse with your political “other” in a respectful way.


Schools Program

AllSides for Schools prepares students for thoughtful participation in democracy — and in life. We help students from middle school through college (and beyond) learn news literacy, civil dialogue and life skills.


Media Technology

AllSides automatically delivers multiple perspectives on any topic to reveal bias, engage users, and connect people for civil conversations. We provide (and often customize) our patented and proprietary technology, platforms, services and content to media companies, schools, research institutions, nonprofits and more.

These services and technologies are also provided to end users at AllSides.com, AllSidesForSchools.org and Mismatch.org.

If you would like to add the AllSides News Feed to your website, check out our Syndication page. If you are interested in using our technology for another purpose, please contact us.


Filter Bubbles Create Polarization. AllSides Fixes This.

TED Talk: Free Yourself From Filter Bubbles

Joan Blades and John Gable, co-founders of AllSides for Schools, describe the dangers of filter bubbles and demonstrate how to bridge the divide between the Left and Right.

Filter bubbles occur when people are only exposed to news, ideas, and people that confirm their existing beliefs. This is how the majority of our online technologies work, from social media to search engines.

When people see only one side, it creates a highly polarized political and social environment, fueling extremism and hatred of “The Other Side.”

AllSides fights filter bubbles and polarization by helping you to gain a broader view. We believe diversity in thought and relationships heals divides. Less polarization allows us to appreciate others and engage in productive problem solving — and ultimately, heal our democracy.

Learn more about filter bubbles and how AllSides is ending polarization.
