Media everywhere are fighting fake news and misinformation. Neutrality, a WikiTribune aim, is often claimed, or sought. But even when exhaustive steps are taken, such as with fact-checking and transparency, bias and opinion can still seep in.
Through analytical discussion, we will examine the obstacles to achieving neutrality and attempt to formulate a solution for solving this problem.
This workshop is for anyone inspired by the challenge of attaining neutrality and objectivity.
