Everyone is biased — and that's okay. There's no such thing as unbiased news. But hidden media bias misleads, manipulates and divides us.

AllSides empowers you to understand the role media bias plays in the news and information you consume. The AllSides Media Bias Ratings™ and AllSides Media Bias Chart™ help make news bias transparent, allowing you to identify different perspectives and political leanings so you can get the full picture and think for yourself.

How We Rate Media Bias

We use multiple methods to rate news bias. Unless otherwise noted, our media bias ratings are based on online, written content. We typically do not rate broadcast, TV, or radio content. In some cases, we provide separate bias ratings for news and editorial/opinion content.

What the Ratings Mean

AllSides Media Bias Ratings reflect the average view of Americans, not one individual.

We encourage everyone to read news across the political spectrum to get a comprehensive view of different perspectives and political leanings. Please note that Center does not mean better! A Center outlet may still omit important perspectives, or run individual articles that display bias.

Our media bias ratings are fluid and subject to change over time as new information is gathered and biases change. See more on how AllSides Media Bias Ratings™ have evolved.

Learn what it means for an outlet to be Left, Lean Left, Center, Lean Right, Right, or Mixed.
