Five Different Risk Biases Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation to help me understand better.

Scan the media over the next week (social media, print media, TV whatever) and come up with five different risk biases as reported in the media or in advertising. Find instances where five different risk biases that are discussed are used to exaggerate or minimize the risk of a situation. For instance, a medical company may use anchoring techniques to make it seem as if the risk of getting a disease or condition is higher and more serious than it actually is. Another example might be a politician or a lobbyist claiming the risk or opportunity of a situation is skewed in order to get a new law passed. Provide a link to each of your five abuses, and briefly explain how that abuse has been manipulated (either consciously or unconsciously).
