Today’s Bias‘s proprietary ‘Bias Meter’ measures the political leanings of all the postings on our website, based on each of the news sources we’ve published on any given day. We strive to keep the meter as close to the center as possible, by bringing you factual information from legitimate news sources on all sides of the political spectrum. Our only goal is to keep you informed.

How do we do this? Our curatorial editors, based in the U.S., Europe and Asia, are constantly reviewing, evaluating and rating hundreds of news sources, using all available metrics. We then compute the ratings of all the news sources on our site to determine the average bias of the site as a whole. The meter shows the reader whether the site is trending to the left or the right.

Our ratings of news sources are adjusted over time; we adjust our ratings as their editorial values change. We also use our methodology to monitor our own performance in order to carefully review our curatorial processes and make sure we’re publishing a balanced collection of content.
