What does a "Center" bias rating mean?
A Center bias means the source or person rated does not predictably show opinions favoring either end of the political spectrum – conservative or liberal.
Either they don't show much bias at all, or their bias leans to the left and right equally at different times.
The AllSides Bias RatingTM reflects the average judgment of the American people.
We don't use a convoluted mathematical or artificial intelligence model, but instead have regular people representing the broad spectrum of Americans blindly rate the bias of articles. That produces a fair, verifiable bias rating. Learn more here.
Unless otherwise noted, this bias rating refers only to news articles on their web site, not from opinion pieces or what is broadcasted on TV or radio. The opinion writers from the same media source may have different bias ratings, so individual writers often are rated separately.
