WFRV Fails to Offer Alternative Viewpoint

WFRV CBS 5  |  7-12-2017

On July 12, 2017, Green Bay’s Channel 5 (WFRV) featured a story during its 6 pm newscast concerning the unveiling of a revised US Senate healthcare bill.  

Watch the report:

Can you spot the bias? This one is quite easy: notice the report lacks any comment from Republican lawmakers as to why the Senate healthcare bill would be a good alternative to Obamacare. Instead, we are simply given Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s liberal viewpoint on the issue.

Choosing to feature only one viewpoint on a highly debated issue constitutes bias by source selection.
