Our media bias ratings reflect the judgment of the American people.

It is not “accurate” – there is no such thing as an accurate measure of media bias – but it does provide readers a sense of the political leanings of the source. This makes it much easier to provide different perspectives on any topic, helping all of us see a more complete picture and better appreciate each other despite our differences. Our ultimate goal is to provide perspectives across the spectrum to free us from our filter bubbles that misinform and divide us. Rating media bias is not the ultimate objective, it is a means to an end.

Note that our media bias ratings refer to the content published online, not to content from TV, radio, print or other media. Media bias of content from the same source tends to be the same over different media channels, but there are notable exceptions to this.

And while there should be a difference between the media bias seen in news coverage and the bias revealed in editorials, there generally is not. Fortunately, there are also exceptions to this. In those cases, AllSides will provide separate ratings for news and editorial from the same source.

  • See how AllSides rates media bias. We use a variety of methods to deliver the best possible results and are always improving.
  • Rate your own bias and see how you compare to others. Remember, your own bias impacts what you think and feel.
  • Help us rate media bias by simply clicking agree or disagree below. Use the filter buttons to see more or fewer sources.
  • Want to suggest a source we're missing? Send us an email and include what you know and your sense of how it should be rated.
