The Hill media bias rating is Center.

AllSides rates The Hill's bias as Center. AllSides gives this media bias rating with medium confidence.

A Center media bias rating doesn't necessarily mean a source is entirely neutral. It simply means a source does not predictably show perspectives favoring either end of the political spectrum — conservative or liberal. Either it doesn't show much bias at all, or its bias leans to the left and right equally at different times.

The Hill Rated Center in February 2020 AllSides Blind Bias Survey

A February 2020 AllSides blind bias survey found that The Hill maintains a Center bias, though on the border of Lean Left.

During a Blind Bias Survey, people who hail from all sides of the political spectrum and a diverse array of ages and geographic locations rate the bias of content from a media outlet blindly, meaning all identifying branding and information is removed.

Our February 2020 blind bias survey showed that participants who rated themselves as Lean Right and Right thought The Hill's content is Lean Left, but not by much. Those who self-identified as being in the Center perceived The Hill's content as being on the border line of Center and Lean Left. Those who describe themselves as Left see The Hill's content as Center; those who describe themselves as Lean Left see the content as between Lean Left and Center.

The overall average response of all groups indicates The Hill's content is on the border line between Lean Left and Center. After assessing the results of this survey, AllSides determined Center remains the best bias rating for The Hill.

AllSides found The Hill published editorials that have a strong left bias or a right bias, therefore making for a balanced editorial page.
