Welcome to On the Fence, a group blog about impartiality in the media by four MA Broadcast/International Journalism students at University College Falmouth.

To explore the issues surrounding impartiality in our blog we’ve divided the topic into 4 different sections that each of us will cover in detail.

Tom will be looking at definitions of impartiality and how reporters achieve the balance of showing both sides of the story, but also finding out the ‘truth’. Ali will be exploring how impartiality is regulated in the media and Owen will be looking at impartiality stateside, and comparing how bias is tackled in the US and the UK. Finally Daphne will be looking at impartiality in China and the issues of censorship and regulation there.

We hope that you enjoy reading the blog and any comments are most welcome,

Tom, Ali, Owen and Daphne
