Media Bias and Objectivity Assignment
"Much ink has been spilled in recent years concerning the issue of mass media ideological bias. However, identifying actual bias can be extremely difficult. A reader is less likely to detect bias if they agree with the point-of-view of the writer, but often see plenty of it if they do not. Popular opinion points to the existence of bias, but actual evidence is somewhat more elusive. This assignment represents a chance for you to delve into some newspaper reporting and look for evidence of bias for yourself."
