Dr. Andy Boyan: Political Bias in American News Media

Thu Sep 28 2017 | 2017-09-22 11:30:00 @ WCCCD Ted Scott Campus

Conservative media figures say the mainstream media is rigged in favor of liberal viewpoints. Liberal media figures say the same about conservative media presence. What is the actual state of the research on political bias in the media?

Dr. Andy Boyan, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Albion College, will take a look at recent research and will look at the larger picture of political media content in the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election. He will also look into the role of social media and how people make judgments about whether their news is fair and balanced.

The talk is a part of WCCCD’s Global Conversations Speaker Series and is open to the public at no cost. For more information, please contact Tameka Mongo at 313-496-2511 or visit www.wcccd.edu.
