What is media bias? Are all media outlets inherently biased? What does it mean for the news we receive? Media bias is a hot topic in the twenty-first century, when everyone and anyone can start a media organization and present content as news, but is all news created equal? Through critical essays and input from media insiders and watchdogs, students will explore what media bias is, how it affects the news they read and watch, and what they can do to make sure that they're not swayed by media bias when they ingest news.
