ThinkProgress media bias rating is Left.

ThinkProgress bias rating is Left. ThinkProgress is an American political blog and a project of the Center for American Progress, a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization. Despite accusations that content is influenced by the Center for American Progress and other liberal advocacy groups, the current editor of ThinkProgress insisted it is editorially independent. A vast majority of the nearly 1,000 AllSides users who voted agreed with this rating. This majority varies from the initial nearly even number of almost 300 community members who agreed and disagreed with the AllSides Bias Rating™ of Left. 


More on ThinkProgress


ThinkProgress operates a number of sections, including climate, economy, health, justice, LGBT, security and culture. Founded in 2005 by current editor Judd Legum, ThinkProgress formerly included a recap and analysis of major political news and a blog titled Wonk Room. Since then, the website was reconfigured into a new format with its current separate blog sections, consolidating other Center for American Progress blogs in the process. Faiz Shakir served as editor from 2007 until 2012 until he left to become Nancy Pelosi’s Director of New Media, prompting Legum to return. One of the blog’s notable sections is Climate Progress, founded by climate scientist Joseph J. Romm, which discusses climate and energy, political news related to climate change, and the media’s coverage of climate change.

The AllSides Media Bias Rating reflects the average judgment of the American people.

The AllSides Media Bias RatingTM reflects the average judgment of the American people. We don't use a convoluted mathematical or artificial intelligence model, but instead have regular people representing the broad spectrum of Americans blindly rate the bias of articles. That produces a fair, verifiable bias rating.

This media bias rating was determined using the following levels of bias verification.

Basis of Rating:

Blind Survey
Third Party Data
Community Feedback
Editorial Review
Secondary Research

Confidence Level:

Low or Initial Rating

Unless otherwise noted, this bias rating refers only to news articles on their web site, not from opinion pieces or what is broadcasted on TV or radio. The opinion writers from the same media source may have different bias ratings, so individual writers often are rated separately.
