Bias: A judgment based on a personal point of view.

BIAS THROUGH SELECTION AND OMISSION:

An writer can express a bias by choosing to use or not to use specific information. Within a given text, some details can be ignored, and others included, to give readers or viewers a different opinion about the events reported.

slide7

SELECTION:

If, during a speech, a few people boo, the reaction can be described as "remarks greeted by jeers" or they can be ignored as "a handful of dissidents."

slide8

OMISSION:

Bias through omission is difficult to detect. Only by comparing articles from a wide variety of sources can the form of bias be observed.

slide10

Speak the words out loud. Who do you imagine would be comfortable saying these words? Someone speaking fairly? Someone with a cause to promote? If the words or reasoning sounds odd or feels uncomfortable coming from your mouth, they could be biased. to convey key point.

Watch for words like always, never, obviously and words that 'jump out at you.' A balanced point of view gives readers options. Biased points of view tend to have only one option: the one being presented. Biased points of view may include words that seem out of place.

slide11

Pay attention to images. Biased arguments are often accompanied by pictures, charts, tables, etc. that support only one conclusion. Remember, a picture may be worth a thousand words. Is the picture real? Is it taken out of context? Is the information in the chart accurate?
