News sources- Facts or Bias?

While readers turn to news sources for unbiased factual reporting, newspapers, TV news and News Websites also typically include a fair bit of opinion. Opinion may be woven into reporting, it may appear in specific opinion pieces written by the editor or the editorial board (”editorials”), it may appear in the writings of individual columnists, or it may appear in cartoons.  

Look closely at any news source to understand the purpose of the piece- is it to inform (just the facts) or is it to persuade (this will be an opinion peice).
