Let’s take a look at the news

Bias and personal opinion have always been present in news coverage, especially when it relates to politics. Studies have shown that while people in “red” states prefer to get their news from outlets that traditionally lean more to the right, people in “blue” states are more likely to get their news from sites that are more liberal.

I intend to examine stories that are covered by outlets that are known to have opposing viewpoints and attempting to answer the following questions:  What are the differences in how these stories were reported? How can these differences influence the opinion of the readers?
