Bias in News Sources

There is some bias in every source. Knowing the POV of sources helps the researcher maintain balance.


In evaluating news sources, the “follow the money rule” is always helpful.  Where do the funds to produce the news for that source come from?  Knowing the source of funding can tell you a lot about the perspective which underlies the news stories.  

Analysis of Individual Stories

Remember news production is never totally objective. The very choice of what to focus on in news stories reveals the bias of the producer.  An evaluation of the news source as a whole (what is on the front page vs what is bumped inside) can provide an overview of the news source in general.  

Here are some more pointers for recognizing bias from watchdog organizations.
