Foreign Affairs media bias rating is Center.

Foreign AffairsAllSides Bias Rating™ is 'center'. While this is an initial rating as of May 2017, it is clear that centrality is the essence of this news source. It's first publication in 1922 stated, "Its articles will not represent any consensus of beliefs. What is demanded of them is that they shall be competent and well informed, representing honest opinions seriously held and convincingly expressed." In addition to its own message, this "multiplatform media organization with a print magazine, a website, a mobile site, various apps and social media feeds, [and] event business," was founded by a similarly focused organization: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR mission states: "The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executivesjournalistseducators and studentscivic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries." Centrality is therefore not just a product, but the whole essence of Foreign Affairs.

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.

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.
