We are identifying bias in a Tweet and in the headline of the article. Both omit crucial context about police involvement in the event. Details below:

  • Author says… Arturo Ceja has been arrested in connection with a massive fireworks explosion that injured 17 people.
  • We say… The explosion was caused by the LAPD negligently/accidentally detonating them in an unsafe manner. To pin the blame on Ceja without mentioning the LAPD is highly irresponsible journalism that gives cover to the direct culprits.
  • More accurate source/headline: 17 hurt in huge blast during LAPD detonation of explosive devices
