The AllSides Bias Rating™ for The Observer is center, though occasionally leaning right. In the 2012 election, the Observer endorsed Republican presidential candidate Mittt Romney. Earlier in 1996, the paper endorsed Bob Dole because it was better to vote for "character over sleaze." The Observer is now owned by Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump's husband and Republican nominee Donald Trump's son in law. Since Trump's nomination, the paper has not been as harsh on Trump as many other news outlets have been. Until more research can be conducted, The Observer's bias rating remains center.
