The Evolution of the Media Bias Chart

Ad Fontes Media CEO appears on ‘As Goes Wisconsin’ podcast



Ad Fontes Media founder and CEO Vanessa Otero was a special guest recently on the “As Goes Wisconsin” podcast, hosted by Kristin Brey. 

Otero explains why she created the first Media Bias Chart prior to the 2016 election (“I’m a big nerd. I did this as a hobby”) and how her hobby evolved into a company that rates the news (“It went viral, much to my surprise … It took on a life of its own”).

How do analysts at Ad Fontes Media actually rate the news and news-like sources? Is there room in the media ecosystem for biased news sources? And what does it mean if a source is in the middle of the chart

Find out the answers to these questions and more in this episode of “As Goes Wisconsin.”
