ssignment #1 – Media Bias
This assignment asks you to pick an issue currently being discussed in the media and follow it for a number of days. You can choose any topic, just make sure it is a topic that is being widely covered in the media. As you look at how the event or topic is covered by multiple news sources, you should analyze and compare the language used in the reporting. Major events and topics are covered by numerous sources, most of which will offer fairly similar information. However, the way they phrase that information, the “spin” they put on it, can differ quite drastically.
Today, more and more people get their news from only one source, usually one in which the bias is similar to their own. This increases the temptation to see the news from one’s usual source as unvarnished truth. One tends to stop asking skeptical questions or thinking critically, and that kind of complacency makes an audience easy to manipulate. Your task, in writing this paper, is to shake off that complacency, to go in as an active and skeptical reader in order to identify and analyze the manipulative language used in each news source.
Format: Word document attachment, 12-point font, double spaced. Don’t forget to have your name on the submitted document. There is not a minimum length, but your thoughts and analysis should be well developed.
