Our next topic in this class will touch on Bias in the Media. The definition of bias relates to being slanted, or only telling one side of the story. How the news reports facts can shape what we believe is true. Please read this link. After reading that page, define these concepts:
- Point of View
- Loaded Language
After you understand these concepts 9and how they relate to media bias) watch cable news (CNN, MSNBC, Fox NEWS), or read a newspaper or magazine. Update your comment with an example you found in the news that might be biased. This is very challenging, so don't give up if you can't find it right away. Need help? Look at how people are talking about China's earthquake, Myanmar's Cyclone, or Hillary vs Obama.
