When searching for media articles, we are reporting more often about the tricks editors use to create guilt by association. It is important for the Investigator to recognise and report the most common tricks used by editors to promote their social or political agendas. Bias in a news media article is as important as the content of the article.
The most common sly trick we see is the ways in which photo captions are used to support the editor’s social or political agenda after reporters have turned in an otherwise objective article.
The most common guilt by association Web trick is to run a news story immediately before, and with a link to, a story that supports the editor’s agenda.
Reporting on these editorial tricks is an important part of evaluating the data in the article.
