In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants evaluate the coverage of a religion in the news for possible media bias.
Ask participants what they know about media bias. Define it if they do not do so. Do they believe media are generally biased or unbiased? Do they believe a specific medium they are familiar with demonstrates a specific bias? How can they tell when the media is biased?
Here are some hallmarks of biased media coverage:
Divide the group into teams and invite each team to read one of the articles. Ask them to look for bias and record the words or images that reveal this bias. Have teams report back to the group about their article and any evidence of bias.
