Americans are more divided than ever, and media bias is making things worse. Clickbait, sensationalism, slant, emotional language, and other polarizing tactics are all used to get attention and views.

She also reveals the AllSides Media Bias Rating of a variety of outlets — including some that may surprise you — so you can ensure you're getting a balanced worldview.
