While searching for a news article that I can deem bias for this blog post, I automatically turned to FoxNews and MSNBC due to the common knowledge of them being partisan bias. As I arrive to the two web pages, there was hardly any noticeable differences, same old news that everybody enjoys, but upon opening up the “Politics” tab at FoxNews.com, the surge of Republican bias struck; everything about this page was dedicated to the republican party. FoxNews has a known partisan bias that (almost) everyone knows about, but I decided to point out how extreme their website is compared to the partisan bias that MSNBC news holds.
As you can see, the politics page of FoxNews is dedicated to Republican candidates while barely mentioning the Democratic Presidential Primary Debate. The partisan bias is prevalent in the FoxNews page compared to the MSNBC page. MSNBC doesn’t have a page dedicated just to “politics” like FoxNews but instead, they separate Republicans and Democrats into different categories.
In conclusion, Fox News and MSNBC both hold a partisan bias, however, Fox is much more aggressive at showing it than MSNBC. While MSNBC dedicates two separate pages for Democrats and Republicans to show that there are two sides of the political spectrum. FoxNews dedicates the “politics” page solely to Republicans; does this mean that FoxNews interprets important political news with only Republicans and how does this translate to the general public’s opinion?
