Worry Week this week is about ethical journalism and one of those hot phrases you’d be fortunate to come across if ever took a paper in news media is agenda setting. Agenda Setting is essentially a news agency setting up a framework for what stories we cover and what is outside of scope. At Bfm we have an agenda setting and that is why you don’t hear about the Kardasian and live up to date scores of the Ashes series. Agenda setting has been blamed for bias media with prime examples being in America such FOX News with agenda favouring Republicans whilst others outlets such as The Huffington Post favouring Democrats but I wanted to have a yarn about agenda setting in our own backyard. So I did just that, I had a yarn that spiraled out of topic with AUT’s senior lecturer Greg Treadwell, firstly asking does New Zealand have a problem with bias media.
