AllSides rates The Hill bias as Center.
A Center media bias rating means a source does not predictably show opinions favoring either end of the political spectrum — conservative or liberal. Either they don't show much bias at all, or its bias leans to the left and right equally at different times. It may also mean the outlet does a good job of portraying both sides equally.
AllSides finds that The Hill publishes editorials that may have a strong left bias or a right bias, therefore making for a balanced editorial page.
The Hill says it provides non-partisan coverage of all factors in legislative decisions.
As of October 2019, 9,108 AllSides community members disagreed with our rating for the The Hill bias. However, of the 3,881 people who disagreed with our rating and voted on what they think The Hill's actual rating should be, the average of their votes turned out to be Center.
Another media bias rating site, Media Bias/Fact Check, rates The Hill as Least Biased.

The reporting is factual and usually sourced."
