This paper describes the Rouletabille participation to the Hyperpartisan News Detection task. We propose the use of different text classification methods for this task. Preliminary experiments using a similar collection used in (Potthast et al., 2018) show that neural-based classification methods reach state-of-the art results. Our final submission is composed of a unique run that ranks among all runs at 3/49 position for the by-publisher test dataset and 43/96 for the by-article test dataset in terms of Accuracy.
