The Media Bias Chart

Our widely respected flagship Media Bias Chart and Interactive Media Bias Chart are the results of many hours of ongoing work by analysts from across the political spectrum following a careful methodology, along with our dedicated team of software and product developers. The latest version of each chart is publicly available for online reference, with downloads available by purchase or membership.

Media Analysis Courses for Life-Long Learners

In addition to creating the Media Bias Chart, we’ve trained dozens of our analysts in our methodology, created our CART Media Analysis Platform for educators and students, and produced several popular webinar series.

Now, we’re making our content analysis training and software platform available to lifelong learners!

Members at the News Nerd and News Nurturer levels gain access to SUMMA Essentials, our core course introducing our media analysis methodology. SUMMA Essentials is the companion curriculum for the CART media analysis platform, where users can rate news content using the same system our analysts use the create the Media Bias Chart.

Additionally, News Nerds and News Nurturers can register to attend live news rating workshops and lessons with Vanessa Otero, senior Ad Fontes Media Analysts, and other members supporting our mission to make news consumers smarter and news media better!
