News plays an important role in our daily life. They are to inform readers of what is happening in the world around them. News were used to be trustworthy, but because of media advancements, it allows everyone to have the opportunities to share their thoughts and causing a piece of news to have many different series of story.

It is also a perfect site to get news from as well because they have selected trustable news from other sources and put in their site to read. I highly recommend it when you want to see what different people are saying about the same issue. It’s eye-opening and can help you learn to pick out news bias elsewhere.

The crowd-sourced bias rating at AllSides is “center,” so it generally doesn’t favor a left- or right-leaning view of the world.
