1. I check out the Hill often and it seems to have predominantly right wing articles...

the occasional opinion piece from the left, center/left, but maybe that is my bias about bias.

3. I've noticed the usually well balanced The Hill to be frighteningly right wing these days.

WTF Happened?

4. It's not the Hill as a whole that is the problem. It's specific writers.

John Solomon, for one. The ownership has also publicly stated that they try to ensure that they're not too critical of Trump.

"The Hill has faced criticism for the hiring of John Solomon, who is described as a strong supporter of President Trump and a conspiracy theorist, with his previous opinion columns under review for false content. Further, it has been reported that owner Jimmy Finkelstein “kept a watchful eye on the newspaper’s coverage to ensure it is not too critical of the President.”"

6. The truth is considered liberal of left these days.

So when you get half the truth and half lies, I guess you're balanced.
