Slate media bias rating is Left.

In September 2018, AllSides conducted an editorial review of Slate. We decided to move Slate's bias from a Lean Left to Left.

The AllSides team found that Slate never includes a Right-leaning perspective on its website, making it unbalanced. Opinion pieces on Slate are often labeled news, making it unclear to readers what is fact and what is opinion. In its news reporting, Slate often uses subjective and emotional words.

At the time of review on Sept. 6, 2018, we noted that multiple pieces of Slate content labeled "news" were not balanced, and gave readers only a Left perspective on issues of the day. For example, that day a piece on the site claimed that the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination is "a matter of life and death" for women — a subjective statement. Another piece claimed the Trump administration was "ignoring" rules against indefinite detention of undocumented children, when in reality the administration released documents proposing to amend them. Another Slate piece labeled "news" opened, "Donald Trump, who is somehow the president, did an interview..." Slate's framing of these issues and subjective language has a clear Left media bias.

According to a 2014 Pew Research study, a clear majority of Slate's audience (76%) is left-of-center.

As of August 2018, before AllSides shifted its Slate media bias rating, 1,436 AllSides readers agreed that Slate's media bias rating is Lean Left. On average, those who disagreed rated& Slate as Left.

In December 2016, Fox News published a piece titled: "BIAS ALERT: Slate switches from defense of Electoral College to calling it a tool of white supremacy."
