Many don’t believe that mainstream media outlets are bias in their reporting. Many still believe that journalists are neutral and accurate in reporting the news. After all, there are just too many journalists to keep under the thumb to convey any specific agenda right?
Here is a page from the BBC broadcaster’s official style guide which instructs journalists on how to frame their stories. This page happens to be abortion. It is clear from the text, that those who are pro-life are to be put in a negative light while those who advocate abortion are to be in a positive one. This is just one instance of an avalanche of media bias that is flooding the airways, newspapers and magazines.
