Abstract:The Internet allows political agents to filter and redistribute the political news of the day to counter the perceived bias they see in the mass media. Bias Collection Sites are one avenue that political agents use to present their filtered version of the news of the day. In this study, I examine how two bias collection sites, commondreams.org and rightwingnews.com, used the already produced news to discuss immigration, environmental issues, and the Iraq War during January 2007. What emerges from my analysis is four distinct ways each side discusses the issues I selected. My analysis reveals that political agents select and manipulate self-serving news stories to reaffirm their already existing political standpoints. The broader explications of my study are that despite the dominate structure of the media. Personal agency can subvert the larger structure of the media.
