A guide to news resources, with information on how to identify bias in media sources

Media Bias

Bias refers to a particular tendency, trend, inclination, feeling, or opinion, especially one that is preconceived or unreasonedWhen it comes to media bias, we are talking about the way different news sources tell stories through a particular lens — usually from either the right end of the political spectrum (representing conservative or Republican values) or the left end of the political spectrum (representing progressive, liberal, or Democratic values). Media bias is different than fake news. Fake news is factually untrue but presented as if it were true or real. Media bias, on the other hand, does not necessarily contain lies, but it may leave out facts that do not support its perspective.
