Objectivity/Bias


Objectivity is the first index of credibility. The more objective a report about incidents/events that occur, the higher the credibility of the report. The media provide both objective and biased reports.Yet it is not always easy to discern bias. As we move through this module you will be asked to consider whether reports are objective or if a bias is displayed through use of verbal or visual images.
