Session 4: Understanding News Media Bias | January 19 at 2pm ET
The first three sessions in this series were focused on misinformation: What it is, how to think about it in productive ways and how to debunk it when you see it online. This last session in the series tackles the adjacent subject of bias in news coverage which also has the potential to mislead and misinform the public. At the same time, vague or unfounded perceptions of bias can cause people to dismiss credible reporting or, worse, institutional news media altogether. This session will help you think more clearly about what causes bias in reporting, what it looks like in coverage and what you can do when you encounter it in your news diet.

This session will be recorded.
