What is Image Bias?

The choice of what images to use or not use to represent a news story is an important decision made by all media sources. For example, accompanying a war article with a picture of dead bodies as opposed to a picture of patriotic soldiers is a concious decision made by a new source. This decision helps to shape the viewer's or reader's opinions on a particular event or person.
