Everyone has a bias

This post is meant to be information and cannot 100% confirm if everyone does has a bias or not. The author of this post does have a centre-left bias but is trying to write this post in a non-bias way.

We all want to talk about what’s going on in the world with others, but we all consume slightly different information and it’s different how we process that information then talk about it.

If you want to see how bias affects news take a look at a site like AllSides and take the time to read the headlines of the different sides. You may even realize that you align well with one side or the other (or maybe in the middle).

Sometimes the writers, or editors use a headline that has a bias and they don’t realize they did so (which is also known as implicit bias). The majority of the time there is bias somewhere and that it has to be applied to the headline to attract their target audience (some say journalists are mostly left leaning).

You can find more details about the bias we all have at Carnegie Mellon University, New York Times, American Press Institute, Forbes, The Telegraph, and Marketwatch to just name a few.
