Media Bias is one of your candidates' statistics.
This issue determines how much the press likes your candidate which can sway independent voters. Note that while this is considered a positive to Democrats and (to a lesser extent) Independents, a high Media Bias rating actually hurts a candidate's standing with Republicans due to conservative mistrust of the media. Likewise, a candidate with a perceived media bias against them is actually moderately appealing to Republicans.
