Find two media stories that represent different media but report on the same issue. You must write a 750- to 1,000-word essay comparing and contrasting
the sources and analyzing the biases of the sources’ creators. Your essay must objectively summarize each source before segueing into more analytical and
evaluative sections in which you will make an argument and support it with evidence from the texts. You may choose any subject in the news that interests
Your sources may come from any of the media listed here. Please note that each of your sources must use a different medium. For example, you could use
one video and one article.
Newspapers and magazines
Your essay should include the following elements:
A claim that says something overall about the objectivity or the bias of the sources
An introduction paragraph, body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph
An objective summary of both sources
In-text citations and a works-cited page
