ABC News media bias rating is Lean Left.

ABC News bias is Lean Left.

Important Note: This page offers a media bias rating for online content on ABCnews.com only. AllSides does not rate the bias of broadcast TV or radio content.

During the 2008 election, 1,160 employees from ABC News and two other major broadcast television networks donated a total of $1,020,816 to the Democratic Party. On the other hand, only 193 donations were made totaling $142,863 to the Republican Party, according to an analysis by The Washington Examiner of data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

The results from an AllSides January 2013 Blind Bias Survey found ABC News bias (website content only) lies on the border line between Lean Left and Left, with a flat normalized score of 1.83 and a raw score of 1.79. A 2005 UCLA study, based on the television news program rather than the website, gave ABC News a Center rating though very close to Lean Left.

As of April 2017, a slight majority of over 5,000 users agreed with our Lean Left ABC News bias rating. The average rating of the people who disagreed was also Lean Left. This is consistent with past community feedback.

A small majority of nearly 1,200 AllSides users disagreed with the Lean Left rating, but those who disagreed were split on whether the rating should be Left or Center, producing an overall average of Lean Left.

As of Dec. 12, 2013, just over half of the AllSides Community agreed with the Lean Left rating, while the other half were split between rating it Left and Center.
