Something to think about
How can we avoid to be influenced by bias in media?
What is your story?
As in the example, the perspective we are looking at the information influences the way we tell the story. It determinants whether we tell the truth or not. In case of media bias, the situation is the same. Different medias are looking at the same information from different perspectives and that determinants what do they decide to report and how they report it. These different perspectives can be caused by different religions, languages or even by money.

EXAMPLE EXAMPLE EXAMPLE EXAMPLE
Media bias is the bias of journalists and news producers in the mass media in the selection of of events and stories that are reported and how they are told. There are many different kinds of media bias: political bias, advertising bias, corporate bias, mainstream bias, sensationalism, concision and others, that can attack or favor a particular race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnic group or even a person.
Why should we be concerned about media bias? -Because what is causes is that the society blindly believes in something which is only partly true or not true at all. People do not have a freedom to choose what they want to know and what they do not. The media can make the whole society to think in a certain way and therefore influence it a lot.
