In a February 2013 review in Journalism & Mass Communication Educator, reviewer Andy Bechtel notes that the book “stresses practical advice to journalism students (as well as those already in the field) and does so with an underpinning of fairness and accuracy, with a dash of psychology…. Overcoming Bias is an accessible book that would be a welcome addition to any reporting class—or in any newsroom.”

Thanks to the Manship School of Mass Communication at Louisiana State University, which currently is showcasing “Overcoming Bias: A Journalist’s Guide to Culture and Context” on its Media Diversity Forum website homepage and under the site’s “Diversity Articles/Reports” tab. As the website states, “The Forum on Media Diversity is designed to serve inclusiveness by seeking resources, supporting research, stimulating dialogue, sponsoring programs and sharing techniques.” The forum’s mission of serving inclusiveness is exactly what “Overcoming Bias” is about. So much good content is on the Forum website. Truly worth taking time to check out.
