JOUR 204 - Media Bias: Beyond Right and Left


Credits: 4

Many of our conversations and opinions on the news media come back to bias, but we rarely take the time to interrogate our own perspectives about it. In this course, students delve into the history and sociology of journalism and the psychology of our own news consumption to go beyond popular conservative and liberal theories of bias and find out how the news media really work. Students talk with prominent journalists and scholars, and they cover a story they care about in order to experience and evaluate firsthand the decisions and influences that go into news media production.
