AllSides is made up of folks from every side of the political aisle and in between, and we’re transparent about our biases. So far, no food fights have erupted.

We believe that to excel at providing a breadth of perspectives, the make-up of our team, partners and contributors matters. We prioritize diversity of thought, especially political thought, and recognize that a group that appears visibly diverse can all share the same narrow perspective. We also look for diversity in gender, age, race, geography, religion, beliefs, background and more — no list can be complete, and we will never get it exactly correct.

We are always open to feedback about other perspectives. Take a look at the political biases of our team members below, see our biases in a chart, and learn more on our About page.
