ANTH 195A: Research Design in Anthropology (Saldivar, Spring 2023): Newspapers

Types of News Media

Newspapers are a part of the larger news media landscape. Different news outlets have different audiences and a different ratio of news to editorial content. Each news outlet has some degree of bias. Use the interactive Media Bias Chart, or see if you can find the news source you're interested in using the static chart below.

Learn more about the creation of this bias chart from this 4-minute video.

NOTE: All writing has some inherit bias associated with the creation and discemination of information. Bias does not mean you should immediately dismiss works from a specific resource, but in research you should consider having an even distribution of bias when presenting materials and supporting arguments.
