USA Today Fact Check media bias rating is Lean Left.

USA Today’s Fact Check section has a Lean Left bias, according to a July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review by AllSides editors on the left, center, and right. 

USA Today’s fact check section aims "to correct and stop the spread of significant misinformation.”

It is worth noting much of the fact-checking page is focused on viral social media posts or unfounded theories. However, left-leaning bias is visible in regards to story choice because when USA Today does fact-check politics, it tends to select issues associated with the left, such as President Biden supportimmigration, and coronavirus vaccine safety. It also “fact checks” comments that are subjective interpretations by adding more context.
