Fake News & Media Bias: Recommended Resources

Critical and Scholarly Research on Journalism

Resources for Faculty


Unlike regular news services, AllSides exposes bias and provides multiple perspectives to promote "balanced news and civil discourse."

The AllSides Perspectives blog provides balanced coverage of today's top news and issues as well as unique views on media bias, filter bubbles, political polarization, and bridging divides — topics that are often ignored by the press. 

AllSides for Schools features resources for teachers from single lessons to entire lesson plans.

When choosing such an extension, be sure to research its own methods of categorizing sites as well as the background of its creators or sponsors.
