Good Morning everyone, welcome to my seminar presentation my name is Vincent and today I’m going to talk about Media and my focus is on whether or not the information contained on mass media platforms are biased. The term bias refers to the tolerance of personal opinions to determine judgment on opposing or supporting a particular party.

This is unavoidable as everyone will form their own opinions as time goes by and they grow up in separate environments and are exposed to different things. Language is a wonderful thing, and it allows information to be passed on with or without forms of bias. What a person’s perception is based on can be heavily affected by how this information is passed and this can be a very bad thing. If one know how bias is displayed in media and distorts what is known they will be better informed overall.

Additionally the tone of the news is applicable; positive and negative news prompt to various open and political responses. Academic research on media coverage of risk emphasizes problems of inaccuracy, bias, and sensationalism in reports advocating a style of risk reporting that offers detailed contextual information (Singer, 1990; Bell, 1994; Allan, 2002). In most cases, this is the case; however, headlines can also misrepresent the gist of an article and can therefore be misleading (Australian Centre for Independent Journalism [ACIJ], 2011; Althaus, Edy, & Phalen, 2001).

Their view explains the relation of attitude towards advertisements, intent and behaviour. Vakratsas and Ambler (1999) their model forms the basis of most persuasive hierarchy models.
