AllSides is dedicated to providing you with multiple perspectives so you can avoid media bias manipulation and think for yourself.

As concerns about misinformation and fake news grow, AllSides is launching a new section of our website: AllSides Misinformation Watch.

This effort will help you identify and avoid misinformation about the most important stories and issues facing the U.S. today. Here's what's it entails:

Our main Misinformation Watch page offers a range of tools for breaking down misinformation, including:

  • Our “What is Fake News?” explainer, with real-life examples
  • Our Facts and Fact Checking section, where you can compare fact checks from sources across the political spectrum
  • Translations of what “misinformation” and “disinformation” mean to people across the political spectrum
  • The AllSides Fact Check Bias Chart™, which reveals the media bias of top checkers, such as Snopes, Politifact,, and more

Our newest blog series is focused on viral examples of misinformation, as well as misleading or unsubstantiated claims. 

We summarize claims, give examples of how voices throughout the political world and media furthered the claim, provide context, and arrive at a conclusion about whether the claim has merit.

Recent installments include:

Similar to our How to Spot 16 Types of Media Bias guide, we’ve published a list of tips and tools to help you recognize and avoid misinformation. The list includes tactics such as: 

  • How to research writers and sources
  • How to trace claims by using hyperlinks and search engines
  • How to read past sensational headlines

The guide also includes plenty of real-world examples of misinformation to help you visualize and build resiliency against fake news.

We’re also planning to introduce a “Report a Lie” feature, allowing users to submit claims that they’d like AllSides to fact check or provide context on.

The media is constantly trying to sway us in one direction or the other, and that can make finding the truth very difficult.

AllSides will never manipulate you into taking a side by employing tactics that are so common in the press today. We don't hide different perspectives or slant information to suit a partisan agenda.

We firmly believe you should get the full picture and decide for yourself.
