This is an interesting topic. If you want to find information in books and scholarly journal articles you should go to the library catalog at library.brenau.edu. The search bar in the middle of the page will give you access to the library catalog. I would use search terms such as media bias to get at the idea of fairness.
Use the left-side toolbar to limit the dates to the last 5 years or so.
The first results you will see will be books and ebooks. If you want to read an ebook just click on the View eBook button and you will be asked to login using your six digit student ID and the first part of your Brenau email address. You can then use the table of contents to navigate to areas of the book that you find interesting or you can use the arrows to move back and forth through the pages.
You'll find ebooks such as Kuypers, J. (2014). Partisan journalism: A history of media bias in the United States. Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield.
Next, if you would like to see scholarly journal articles on your topic click on the box labeled Article under Format to the left-side toolbar of the results screen. Set the date limiter, and choose Full Text and Peer Reviewed, also in the left-side toolbar. Click on the View Full Text button to be taken into the article.
You'll see articles such as Luo, X. (2017). Collective mass media bias, social media, and non-partisans. Economics Letters, 156, 78-81. doi:10.1016/j.econlet.2017.04.015 .
