Take the Bias Quiz.
How can you protect yourself from biased material on the web?
The answer is that you CAN'T. You also don't want to.
Bias occurs when information becomes colored by opinion or is created by those with a stake in an issue. You need to know what those with strong opinions on your topic think, even if you disagree with it. Also those who are key players in your topic, companies that manufacture a product, same sex couples, women who have had an abortion, a paretn who has lost a child to texting while driving, think. For a controversialor public policy topic, nearly all primary sources (Sources written by those deeply involved with your topic) are heavily biased.
All written material contains some bias. Many reputable print magazines and journals have a noticeable slant. Nearly all credible news sources painstakingly check their facts and avoiding outright lying, but bias shows up through selective coverage and emotional wording.
Bias becomes a problem, when sources pretend to be completely objective They're not. Bias can also be an issue, when a social media feed (or Google searches) give you only news stories and links that fit your point of view.
Going out of your way to find primary and news sources on both sides of an issue, even if the primary source is lying and you think the other side is dead wrong, turns bias to your advantage.
