The news we hear daily comes from big corporations and this information can be skew depending on the corporate’s interest. Corporate bias news are stories that are selected or slanted to please corporate owners in the media world. The news and stories will emphasize one point of view instead of providing ethical journalism which is unbiased.
Looking at an article in therealnews.com which is an independent news source, we can see how this news is covered differently by mainstream news sources. The article, ” Dakota Access Pipeline Protests Face Pepper Spray, Attack Dogs” by Jaisal Noor talks about how Energy Transfer Partners have a project to build a pipeline carrying crude oil daily from North Dakota to existing pipeline in Illinois, where shippers can access the markets. Noor himself states, “While the mainstream media has been largely silent on this issue.” His statement talks about how only recently has mainstream media talked about the issue and it’s only because video caught guards using pepper spray and dogs against protesters. ABC News was the only mainstream news that wrote an article about this topic. ABS News article, “What is the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline” by The Associated Press does not inform about the protest, it mainly talks about the facts of the Dakota Pipeline. Noor talks about the actions and testimonies from both sides while The Associated Press talks about politicians and lawsuits.
