Abstract / Description
It is often the case that traditional media provide coverage of a news event on the basis of journalists' viewpoints - a problem termed in the literature as media bias. On the other hand social media have given birth to an alternative paradigm of journalism known as "citizen journalism". We take advantage of citizen journalism to detect the bias in traditional media and propose a simple model for empirical measurement of media bias. Copyright is held by the author/owner(s).
