The AllSides Media Bias Chart™ just underwent some updates. Check out our latest, Version 5, below:

Here's what's new in Version 5:

A recent Blind Bias Survey strengthened our ratings for ABC, CBS, and Reason magazine.

Some reminders about the AllSides Media Bias Chart™:

We don't rate accuracy or credibility. This chart speaks to political perspective only.

We use multipartisan, scientific analysis. We use multiple methodologies to rate bias, including Blind Bias Surveys, Editorial Reviews, independent reviews and third party data. View our bias verification list here.

Center doesn't mean better! A Center media bias rating doesn't necessarily mean a source is neutral, unbiased, perfectly reasonable or credible, just as Left and Right don't necessarily mean extreme, wrong, or unreasonable. A Center rating simply means the source does not predictably publish perspectives favoring either end of the political spectrum — conservative or liberal. A Center outlet may omit important perspectives, or run individual articles that display bias. 

We encourage people to read outlets across the political spectrum, not just Center outlets. There is rarely a perfect Center outlet — in fact, many of our Center outlets are somewhat Center-Left (such as NPR, BBC and AP), while a few are somewhat Center-Right (such as RealClearPolitics).

We want to hear from you! Vote on our ratings or sign up to participate in our next Blind Bias Survey
