What a "Center" Rating Means
Sources with an AllSides Media Bias Rating of Center either do not show much predictable media bias, display a balance of articles with left and right biases, or equally balance left and right perspectives.
Center doesn't mean better! A Center media bias rating does not necessarily mean a source is totally unbiased, neutral, perfectly reasonable, or credible, just as Left and Right don't necessarily mean extreme, wrong, unreasonable, or not credible. AllSides encourages people to read outlets across the political spectrum.Learn more about Center ratings
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.
