Media Bias
« on: May 27, 2020, 12:53:02 PM »
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.

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.
