Before the rise of professional journalism in the early 1900s and the conception of media ethics, newspapers reflected the opinions of the publisher. Biased media refers to the bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of which events and stories are reported and how they are covered.
This new era in which some media systematically emphasizes one particular point of view to push a certain opinion for public, Social Media gave a chance to publish facts and true stories that go viral!
