Conservatives looking for an alternative to Google news to escape the leftist ideological bent need not look at Bing for an answer, according to a new report.
The Daily Signal, citing an AllSides study, said Bing skews even further left than Google.
“People completely underestimate the dangers of bias when it comes to search engines. They think they are getting balanced information, and they’re not,” John Gable, co-founder and CEO of AllSides, the organization that conducted the study, explained to the Daily Signal.
“Instead, they’re being thrown into divisive filter bubbles that make them confidently ignorant.”
AllSides dedicates itself to presenting balanced news, and analyzed Bing during March.
“The analysis found that 83% of the articles on Bing News’ homepage came from media outlets AllSides rates as Lean Left or Left, while only 13% came from media outlets rated Center, and 0% came from sources rated Lean Right or Right,” the Daily Signal reported.
The politics page was just about as bad, with 51% from outlets rated left or left-leaning. Only 28% came from “center” and only 8% from “right” outlets.
Leftist publications were dominant on the homepage, including the Associated Press (17%), USA Today *15%), ABC News (13%), NBC News (11%), The Washington Post (9%) and others.

On specific issues, the bias was abundantly clear, as regarding “abortion,” the coverage was 19% left and 44% lean left. Only 9% were “right.”
On “crime,” the results were similar, as they were on immigration.
The Daily Signal reported,” AllSides used various methods to obtain objective results, including accessing the Bing News homepage in a private browser, blocking cookies, and incorporating ‘spot checks’ to ensure that the same content appeared for different AllSides team members accessing Bing News from different locations in the U.S. The analysts did not customize their Bing News settings, to avoid personal impacts on the results.”
Google has claimed it has no ideological bias in his news results.
“Even if not intentional, Google appears to have decided that the problem of political bias is not a sufficiently important problem to address, or has so far been unable to address it effectively,” Gable told The Daily Signal then.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although millions of American parents send their precious children off to public school every day, imagining their kids’ days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they’re not only in for a shock – but for total BETRAYAL. Today’s “public” (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children.
Kids are being taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child’s transgender “transition.” In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to “catastrophic climate change.” Another lie. But it’s all classic Marxism/communism, with even the “3 R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic – now being corrupted with “woke,” “1984”-style madness.
Perhaps never has the true threat of today’s U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational April issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America’s public school system.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
