How far does it go and does it actually affect our daily lives - what we buy, how we vote, how we react to certain viewpoints in the media
Possibly the largest range of bias is in the political spectrum as we have seen lately through both the American and Canadian elections.
Do people automatically take what they see and hear as the "gospel truth" or are they informed enough and objective enough to see through the bias and perhaps pull out the increasingly smaller bits of "fact"
Political bias may be impossible to avoid in today's style of fast-paced 24-hour news coverage. News programs today are apparently designed to retain the attention of hyperactive and impatient viewers — people with dozens of other channels from which to choose, and a remote control always nearby. (Forty years ago, when you had to get up and walk across the room to change the channel, people stuck with a program for its duration.) You'll rarely see a news story these days, especially during ratings periods, in which a single shot lasts more than three seconds. On a normal day, almost every story is told in less than two minutes. This results in a great loss of detail, and that's where the TV producer's personal bias comes into play: he or she decides what parts of a story to include or omit.
