Reuters Fact Check media bias rating is Center.

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.
