Salon media bias rating is Left.

Salon has a far left bias in its daily reviews of domestic politics and provocative cultural topics. The American Journalism Review described Salon's political views as provocative and liberal, while many readers have noticed a uniquely progressive, Northern California style in the website’s content. Accordingly, the AllSides Bias Rating™ for Salon is far left, a rating we have a medium confidence level in. A majority of nearly 3500 AllSides community members agreed with this rating, while 29 of those who disagreed gave Salon an average bias rating of 70. This score falls in the middle of the lean left bias, but it is not enough evidence to change Salon's rating. 

More on Salon

In addition to politically liberal commentary, Salon covers a variety of topics including reviews about books, films and music; articles about modern life, including relationships and sexuality; and reviews about technology. Founded in 1995 by David Talbot, it was created by former San Francisco Examiner staff members who departed the newspaper looking to explore digital journalism.  The website has maintained its progressive style over the years, producing stories in the format of a “smart tabloid” in order to reach popular audiences, as Talbot said in 2008. Although it has historically been unprofitable, Salon offers both free and premium content, with about 15 new articles posted per day.
