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.

According to the 2014 Pew Research Study, Where News Audiences Fit on the Political Spectrum, the majority (59%) of HuffPost readers hold political values to the political left or left-of-center. 17% of HuffPost's audience is right or right-of-center (compared with 26% of all respondents to the survey). Roughly 23% of HuffPost's audience is considered mixed or center (compared with 36% of all respondents to the survey).
