Chase the Fault Lines
Maynard Institute for Journalism Education - Non-Profit - www.mije.org
Studies repeatedly show that skewed news media portrayals of people of color has a devastating effect on our public policy, from issues of school reform to incarceration.
Our project allows users to see how individual perspective determines which facts get included in a news story, and how that, in turn, shapes the overall perspective of the story.
Maynard staff will post several stories on a subject. Users would be given a list of facts and could build their own story, which would then be rated to demonstrate which "fault linesâ€ perspectives are included in the story.
