Abstract:

We explored the perceptions of media bias on the part of news article readers by manipulating their expectations of bias and the topic of the stimulus materials. Readers were more likely to designate material in opposition to their own viewpoints as biased. The statements often indicated as biased were quotations, rather than the other types of statement in the reports. Also, the perception of bias was topic-dependent.
