Pseudo-labelling Enhanced Media Bias Detection

  title={Pseudo-labelling Enhanced Media Bias Detection},
  author={Qin Ruan and Brian Mac Namee and Ruihai Dong},
Leveraging unlabelled data through weak or distant supervision is a compelling approach to developing more effective text classification models. This paper proposes a simple but effective data augmentation method, which leverages the idea of pseudolabelling to select samples from noisy distant supervision annotation datasets. The result shows that the proposed method improves the accuracy of biased news detection models.
