Bias in the Media Research Guide

Media bias refers to prejudice in journalists and news outlets about how news stories are selected and presented in the mass media. While "fake news" generally refers to wholly fabricated stories, media bias can cause the reporting of true news stories to be slanted in such a way as to encourage misinterpretation and false conclusions. When researching, it's a good idea to have an understanding of how to recognize and interpret media bias in order to make sure you consider all sides of an issue.
