I have a psychology class and I am fairly close to the teacher. I talk to him every once in a while about politics, and nearly every time we do it comes back to how horrible the media is with its bias and misrepresentation of truth. I frequent this topic with him, and just this week he offered me a task--one that I would love to accept. He told me I needed to practically write up a lecture I could give to the class, showing them how the media messes with people's perceptions.

Here is where it gets hard. Bias of the media can sometimes be debated, and there are thousands of examples that could be used to show how they lie and twist things around. This makes it tough to decide what to show to a class of psychology students (who have a range of intelligence). I need to find some REALLY good examples of media bias/misrepresentation and I want to make sure the message is loud and clear.

I will post a few videos to get it started, but I really need some help here with some good clips and material. If we are lucky, this thread can get a small bit of attention and can be used as reference to all those people who believe the media is justified in its evil.

Of course these media clips don't need to be political, I will post a few anyway though.

Just watch MSNBC and Fox, and you'll get plenty, from the 2 different sides. I recommend Rachel Madcow and Dild O'Reilly.

The obvious bias in your comment [childish name calling] is even more ironic given the topic of the thread.
Oh wait, I get it. You were showing what a bias looks like. Got it. Thanks!

Yes, I don't like MSNBC or Fox. I'm bias against talking heads that spin the news. Apparently, you like it. Go back to sleep now.

Yeah, ok everyone knows that there is bias on the media, but that is my point. I want the best examples though. Just telling a group of people that something is biased isn't what I want to do, I want to show them

That's my point. Watch either one of them fools and you'll see the bias. Rachel can't say a good thing about anyone with a (R) at the end of their name, and Bill can't say anything good about anyone with a (D) at the end of their name. They're both bias. You can have your answers by simply watching a few of their clips on Youtube. Pick ANY of their clips, and you'll have your own answers.

No problem. And good luck with the presentation. I hope it manages to open some people's minds a little more and allow them to think critically.

Here's an example of FOX manipulating what happened with the election protests in Russia last year. Instead of using actual footage from Moscow, they used clips from the Greek riots that made it look like all hell had broken loose in Russia.



And here is the Russia Today video calling out FOX, while also putting their own slant on the matter.

Hey that "some people say" video is genius. I never really thought about it but when they say "some people say", they very legitimately could be saying "

Fox... by far. They don't even try to look un-biased.
