Reflections on Media & Bias

  1. Where do I go for my news? How have I judged others for the sources they utilize?
  2. How do my biases about race, class, gender, age, and more show up in my consumption (learning and processing) of the news? How do those assumptions help or hinder my process of anti-racism? What does it mean to be objective? Is it possible not to have biases? How can biases be helpful rather than destructive?”
  3. How do I show up in conversations about the news and media? What emotions come up for me, and how do I typically respond to views that may oppose mine?
  4. Am I aware of the corporate interests that impact my local news coverage? How do I get local news? How are journalists protected and held accountable in my community?
