July 2021 Editorial Review: Center Bias
The Dispatch Fact Check has a Center bias rating, according to a July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review by AllSides editors on the left, center, and right.
The Dispatch Fact Check is a section of The Dispatch, a digital news website founded in 2019. We determined the fact check section had a media bias rating different from the overall website, and thus we rated it separately.
The Dispatch Fact Check displayed balanced story choice, as it fact-checked the right and left equally. It was also consistent in citing its sources and rarely used partisan language. This evidence suggested a Center bias rating.
About The Dispatch Fact Check
The Dispatch Fact Check’s stated goal is “to identify and correct errors of fact, misstatements, misinformation and outright disinformation” because they are a “detriment of our national discourse.”
It receives its fact-check suggestions from staff and readers. It also recognizes that sometimes “one ‘side’ of the political spectrum is more in the news than others” and makes an effort to keep its page balanced.
