What is Partisan Journalism?

Definition and meaning of partisan journalism: Partisan journalism is an approach to reporting news, events and stories that is biased and driven by a political viewpoint. It is often characterized by an adherence to a certain ideology or party line and the presentation of information in a way that favors one political opinion over another. Examples of partisan journalism can range from news outlets that only present stories from a single perspective to publications that present stories from multiple perspectives, but with a clear bias towards one political viewpoint. Reform-minded journalists strive to present a balanced and fair view of the news while avoiding partisan journalism, which can lead to decreased public trust in media outlets.
