What a Center Bias Rating Means

The source either does not show much media bias, displays a balance of articles with left and right biases, or equally balances left and right perspectives in its reporting.

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.

BBC Fact Check Rated Center in July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review

The BBC fact check section, called Reality Check, has a Center bias rating, according to a July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review by AllSides editors on the left, center, and right. 

Reality Check posted fact-checks for a wide range of topics and countries. We found it to have a Center bias because of a lack of partisan language and transparent use of sources.

Our team is U.S.-based and, therefore, not fully confident in declaring the bias of articles with an international focus.
