Media Bias: Current Conversations

Events


Thursday, April 29, 2021
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM


Peter Adams, NLP’s senior vice president of education, will discuss media bias and show consumers how to evaluate news coverage in a virtual presentation for the St. Charles City-County Library Current Conversations series.

People frequently perceive and allege bias in news coverage, but what does this really mean? What makes a piece of news biased, and who decides? What role do our own biases play in our perceptions of bias? In this session we’ll help you understand this vital, controversial, complex topic in ways that empower you to meaningfully evaluate the fairness and impartiality of news coverage.
