Storyboard Text

  • There are six different types of Media Bias lets start with the first one. The first type is called Bias By Omission that means that one side of the article is left out of an article or series of articles. This disaproves the liberal and conservative claims.
  • The second type is called Bias By Story Selection. This is a pattern of highlighting news stories that coincide with either the left or the right while ignoring stories that reconcile with the opposing views. (left = conservative right = liberal)
  • The third type is called Bias By Placement. This is where a website, newspaper, or in an article a story or an event is printed in a pattern of placing news stories so as to downplay information supportive of either conservative or liberal views.
  • The fourth one is called Bias By Labeling. This comes in two forms the first form is tagging of conservative politicians and groups with extreme labels while leaving liberal politicians and groups enabled or with mild labels or vice versa. The second occurs when a reporter not only fails to identify a liberal as a liberal or a conservative as a conservative.
  • The fifth one is called Bias By Spin. This is when the story has only one interpretation of an event or policy.
  • The sixth and final type is Bias By Selection Of Sources. This is when someone is including more sources that support one view over another.
