Bias vs. Truth.
Bias vs. Truth
The media coverage of many important world issues needs to be carefully assessed for inherent biases related to key factors including: political agenda, economic interests, advertiser pressure and media ownership. In an effort to present an unbiased view of an issue it is important to consider a number of sources, reflecting various views. Identify an area of the underground economy and provide an objective view of the issue, using a variety of print media sources that reflect different political viewpoints (i.e. left vs. right)
In examining and attempting to answer the above question a number of issues should be covered, including: Is the media outlet providing a left, right, or balanced view? What is the evidence of this? Whose interests are reflected in how the story is being presented? What incentives are creating this particular viewpoint?
