The Hill is a political newspaper and website founded in 1994. It is located in Washington, D.C. and is a subsidiary of News Communications. At one time it was a weekly publication but has since expanded to a daily format while lawmakers are in session. News for and about Congress with a special focus on business and lobbying, political campaigns, and the goings on in the Washington, D.C. beltway. The Hill has the largest circulation of any Capitol Hill periodical.
While not necessarily conservative, The Hill is generally more balanced compared to other mainstream media sources, although the comment sections for its online stories tend to get overwhelmed with liberal posters who make vulgar, immature and grossly misinformed comments that deliberately mischaracterize and libel conservative public figures and anyone who supports them. In 2018, it announced it would no longer attend the White House Correspondents Dinner minus "major reforms" after the event featured vulgar anti-Trump speakers. Leftists have occasionally attacked The Hill for not always reporting on the news from a left-wing perspective.
However, The Hill has behaved like a leftist outlet in the past. For example, they participated in the use of photos of migrant detention facilities under the Obama administration to smear Donald Trump. Some conservatives, such as Mark Dice, have criticized The Hill.
