Biased compared to what?
Academics have been trying to quantify media bias for some time, and researchers in the field say techniques are improving. Algorithms and artificial intelligence are allowing computers to read facial expressions and vocal tone. Researchers are analyzing larger and larger datasets for occurrences of specific phrases, which could show how an issue is framed or what sources are cited. For example, economists Matthew Gentzkow and Jesse Shapiro analyzed the 2005 Congressional Record to find phrases frequently used by either liberal or conservative members of Congress, and compared these to the news content of over 400 newspapers over the same time period. Their 2010 analysis found that newspapers’ political slant correlated fairly well with the public’s perception of them: The Washington Times slanted right, The Washington Post slanted left, and so on.

International / Media Bias

One of the hardest things to understand is how to scale someone or a company's bias. We can feel it and think we see it but to truly be unbias to data. I'm going to compose a list of known sources that's sole job is to check sourcing I guess you can say.

General Discussion (Public) / Twitter Transparency with Government

So apparently Twitter is open about all the information they share with government. If you go to https://transparency.twitter.com/ you can see it all. However the government apparently wants to block this now.

The laptop was bought by G Data CyberDefense, a German company with 500 employees that prides itself on having built one of the first antivirus software programs in the 1980s. Hauke Gierow, a company spokesman, described the computer as “an old thing from the early 2000s.”

“It’s not the kind of thing you can use in your office,” he said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “We bought it purely out of curiosity.”

That included the chance that there might be something interesting on the hard drive, Mr. Gierow said — and the hunch turned out to be correct, even if the buyer didn’t realize it immediately.

International / Corona Virus 2019-2020

So this has made national news and we're being overwhelmed with information. Anything worth posting please put in here regarding this subject. CodeBrosForums is mostly about technology but we do allow some other topics within their own subforums.

What is Corona Virus (also known as COVID-19)?:
According to the CDC, COVID-19 is known as a "novel coronavirus." On their website it reads, "A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold."
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html#basics

This virus is thought to be spread from person-to-person contact. So avoid crowds and make sure to avoid touching places like your face. Washing your hands properly is very important.

Even though chances of getting bad sick are low (as of this post) it's still good to keep the spreading of this as low as possible.
