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 them. Also those who are key players in your topic, companies that manufacture a product, same sex couples, women who have had an abortion, a parent who has lost a child to texting while driving, think. For a controversial or public policy topic, nearly all primary sources (Sources written by those deeply involved with your topic) are heavily biased.
Please don't confuse biased information with implicit bias, which refers to unconsciously held stereotypes rather than expressed opinion.
Nearly all material contains some bias. Many credible magazines and journals have a noticeable slant. Nearly all reputable 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 search engine gives you only news stories or 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 you are sure the primary source is lying or you think the other side is dead wrong, turns bias to your advantage.
