A few months ago, I started the hashtag #basketcase, as a way of highlighting the way some people have been branded a basket case by the media.
The hashtag quickly spread around social media and gained traction, generating a huge amount of interest, especially among women.
I decided to take a look at the way in which people were branded by the mainstream media.
What’s the definition of a ‘typical’ ‘bias case’?
I started by looking at the media coverage of the coronavirus pandemic and how it had been framed in the UK media.
I found that many of the headlines were inaccurate and, at times, deliberately biased, which meant that some readers were often left feeling like they had been put on a pedestal.
In my opinion, the UK press was guilty of making the coronovirus pandemics headlines, because of the way they were framed.
But what’s the real definition of bias?
I began to look into the definition in the Oxford English Dictionary, and found that in the 18th century, it was generally believed that bias was a “mistake in judgment or opinion”.
This meant that it was something that was made on purpose and, if done with malice, meant to undermine or deceive.
It was a way to avoid the scrutiny that comes from presenting a fair, balanced picture.
But this was a very long time ago, when the concept of bias was not at all accepted.
It turns out that bias in the media is often a by-product of the media’s approach to the pandemic, which is to present a story that is as ‘mainstream’ as possible, while also attempting to maintain some semblance of credibility.
Bias in the press can be subtle, and can often take place in the background, in the margins or, in extreme cases, on the front page of the newspaper.
But the main thing to look out for when viewing the media headlines is the way the article is framed, as I found out.
What are some of the most common bias cases?
The term bias can be a bit subjective, as it is not always clear exactly what is meant by it.
In the context of a coronaviruses, the term refers to the way a story is presented or reported.
In some cases, a story may be presented in such a way that it presents a different angle to what the reader would expect to be the story, such as presenting the news in a way which would make the reader think that there is something different to it, rather than presenting the story as it actually is.
Another example of a bias case would be a story which presents a specific disease as a problem to be tackled by the public, and then it then presents the health system in a different way to what it actually does, such that it suggests that the public have more access to treatment.
A third bias case is one where a story presents a particular event as having a particular effect, rather then presenting it in a manner which the reader might expect it to have, such like presenting a story in a positive way, but then also presenting a negative picture of the health service.
This is sometimes called the ‘bamboozlement bias’.
Another type of bias is that which involves presenting information which is not fully understood by the reader, such a story presenting information that is either contradictory to the story or it is wrong in some way.
Finally, there is the bias that relates to a news story that, in a sense, is biased in a negative way, and which is intended to undermine the public’s trust in the news.
It is important to note that a bias in reporting does not mean that the story is untrue, or that the information is incorrect, it merely means that the article should be presented with a level of care and sensitivity.
What can we do to combat this?
To address bias in media coverage, it is important for people to understand that it is a natural response to an epidemic.
In an article that is published in the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal, for example, you may be surprised to learn that there are many people who are not as well informed as they might like to be, and that they are not necessarily the same people who would have reacted in the same way to a story.
If we can reduce the degree to which people perceive the media as biased, it can make it more difficult for them to become part of a healthy, open, inclusive and productive conversation.
However, it’s important to be aware that bias is not something that can be fixed.
People can always try to change the way that they see and hear the news, and to create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all.
The best way to do that is to change how the news is presented, so that it more accurately reflects what people actually experience.
This would involve looking at where certain types of information is presented in a news article and what is considered to
