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.

Details

Reuters’ fact check section has a Center bias, though there may be some evidence of Lean Left bias, according to a July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review by AllSides editors on the left, center, and right.

Reuters’ fact-checking page is run by its editorial department. Its stated primary goal is “fact-check[ing] visual material and claims posted on social media.” 

The July 2021 review found that the fact-checking section of Reuters had minimal partisan language and diligent use of sources.

There was some evidence of a slight Lean Left bias, such as this article in which Reuters attempts to fact-check an opinion by adding more context. However, we did not necessarily identify a clear pattern of this because much of Reuters’ content is focused on international issues, not just U.S. politics, and our team is U.S.-based.

Reuters is a signatory of the code of principles from the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), created by Poynter.
