Lost in Translation?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In their 2006 JPE media paper, Gentzkow and Shapiro  begin their piece by contrasting how the New York Times and Al Jazeera report on the same foreign policy event. I experienced something like this today because “The Conversation” just published a piece I wrote. The title for my piece is:
As Incomes Rise in China, so Does Concern About Pollution”.    The New Republic has republished my piece but it has given it this headline;

As Chinese Incomes Rise, So Does Pollution

Do you see that the two headlines differ in predictable ways?  Media bias revisited!
