Synopsis

Designed to help readers come to recognize bias in their nation's news, to detect ideology, slant, and spin at work, and to recognize propaganda when exposed to it, so that they can reasonably determine what media messages need to be supplemented, counterbalanced, or thrown out entirely. It focuses on the internal logic of the news as well as societal influences on the media.
