Every person on this planet has their own biases, but good news sources try to avoid spreading them. Some are more successful than others. In this informative book, young readers will learn what bias is, how to recognize it in news sources, why this happens, and how to avoid it. Historical facts and real-life examples will also help them consider their own biases and challenge them when they choose what kinds of media to consume and believe, and when they produce their own pieces of writing and other media, as well.
