USA TODAY media bias rating is Center.

USA Today bias is Center. USA Today does not endorse any specific candidate for office. Many consider USA Today to be center, but some believe the editorial pieces have a left-leaning bias. The January 2013 blind survey rated USA Today as center, though somewhat close to the border of lean left. The October 2013 survey respondents blind rated USA Today as dead center. The UCLA 2005 study rated it as lean left, but most of the AllSides community agree with the rating of center. As of April 2017, a majority of AllSides users who voted agreed with the bias rating of Center. As of July 2016, the average rating of all community feedback (agree and disagree) is center, but much closer to leaning left. As ongoing research continues, the AllSides Bias Rating™ remains center.
