In January 2020, AllSides decided to split the bias rating for The Week into two following an independent review by members of the AllSides team that found the bias of The Week's opinion section differs significantly from its news section.
The Week's news articles are relatively balanced, but its opinion pieces have a strong Lean Left bias. The Week prominently displays commentary and opinion pieces on its homepage.
AllSides rates the bias of online content only; our ratings do not apply to print, radio, video, or TV content.
