Can You Spot The Bias?

Let’s play a game of ‘Spot The Bias‘. Here are the rules, you look at the following AP photos and see if you can determine, without me telling you, which American political party they support. (Please, when you figure it out, don’t say anything because we don’t want to make it easy for the next person and spoil their fun.)

Okay, maybe I’ve made it too hard. Here’s one more photo just to make it a little easier for you:


Remember back in the good old days when the news media at least pretended to be objective? Yeah, well those days are dead and gone.

The most effectual engines for [pacifying a nation] are the public papers… [A despotic] government always [keeps] a kind of standing army of newswriters who, without any regard to truth or to what should be like truth, [invent] and put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers. This suffices with the mass of the people who have no means of distinguishing the false from the true paragraphs of a newspaper.” –Thomas Jefferson
