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

The Saturday Evening Post is an American magazine currently published six times per year. It was published weekly from 1897 until 1963, and every two weeks until 1969, according to Wikipedia.

AllSides rates The Saturday Evening Post as having a Center media bias, meaning it does not predictably publish opinions favoring either end of the political spectrum — conservative or liberal. This is an initial rating given with Low confidence, meaning more research is needed.

From the 1920s to the 1960s, the Post was one of the most widely circulated and influential magazines for the American middle class. It included fiction and non-fiction stories, cartoons and features.

In 1916, Post editor George Horace Lorimer discovered Norman Rockwell, then an unknown 22-year-old New York artist. Rockwell's illustrations of the American family and rural life became icons, and are still printed as posters and other prints. During his 50-year career with the Post, Rockwell painted more than 300 magazine covers.

The magazine underwent a redesign in 2013.

The Post's stated mission, according to its website:

"For nearly 200 years, The Saturday Evening Post has chronicled American history in the making—reflecting the distinctive characteristics and values that define the American way. Today’s Post continues the grand tradition of providing art, entertainment and information in a stimulating mix of idea-driven features, cutting-edge health and medical trends—plus fiction, humor, and laugh-out-loud cartoons. A key feature is the Post Perspective, which brings historical context to current issues and relevant topics such as health care, religious freedom, education, and more."
