This paper will be analyzing the sources reporters use to write their stories. Looking at these sources through the lens of Lance Bennett’s “News: The Politics of Illusion”.
You need to use two different sources. The sources can be a mix of print newspaper and online news (no video) or all print or all online. You need five articles for each of the two sources, for a total of ten articles. To provide a fair comparison of the sources, you should try to use sets of articles published close together in time. Established sources preferable (New York Times, Washington Post, etc.) NO EDITORIALS. Provide an overall assessment at the end.
The topic of the articles should be the recent terrorists attacks in Paris Nov 13, 2015.
I will answer any email questions promptly.
