HuffPost media bias rating is Left.

The AllSides Bias Rating™ currently gives HuffPost (formerly The Huffington Post) a media bias rating of left. Over half of the 16,000 AllSides users who voted disagree, but note that this raw voting data from AllSides users is not normalized (so most votes could come from one political segment or from an outside group hoping to influence our ratings). The results from the January 2013, March 2013, and October 2013 Blind Surveys (which are normalized to better reflect American opinion) clearly indicate that The Huffington Post has a left bias (see other highlights of that study here). The Huffington Post identifies itself as an overtly liberal news and information site, which is consistent with the AllSides blind bias rating studies.

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.
