dc.description.abstractThe amount of bias in news stories covering the preliminary hearings of the O.J. Simpson trial is measured by analyzing articles printed in the New York Times and the Independent Record and applying the Hayakawa-Lowry system of content categories for determining bias. The results indicate that the New York Times is slightly more likely to be perceived as fair in their coverage of the Simpson event than the Independent Record. The results also point towards a greater chance of perceived bias when Associated Press articles are compared with NYT originals.
