BuzzFeed News media bias rating is Left.

AllSides gives BuzzFeed News a Left media bias rating.

An editorial review by the AllSides team in September 2018 found that Buzzfeed News never includes a Right-leaning opinion or perspective.   In July 2019, another editorial review concluded that BuzzFeed deserved a Left rating based on its infrequent inclusion of right-leaning perspectives and occasional misrepresentation of facts to support leftist points of view.

Before AllSides changed the rating in July 2019, roughly 4,400 AllSides readers agreed with the media bias rating of Lean Left, while roughly 6,700 disagreed. The 2014 Pew Research Study, Where News Audiences Fit on the Political Spectrum, found "those on the left of the ideological spectrum are overrepresented in [BuzzFeed's] audience (59%, compared with 38% of all respondents)."

The AllSides Media Bias Rating reflects the average judgment of the American people.

The AllSides Media 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.

This media bias rating was determined using the following levels of bias verification.

Basis of Rating:

Blind Survey
Third Party Data
Community Feedback
Editorial Review
Secondary Research

Confidence Level:


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.
