Background: In order to accurately understand important issues, we need to engage with coverage of these topics from a variety of sources across the political spectrum so that we can make informed decisions.When we stick solely to sources that validate our opinions or worldview, then we often fail to understand the complexity of the issues, which leaves us vulnerable to those who seek to manipulate us. For this assignment, you will choose a political issue; select three articles on (one from a mainstream media source, one from a liberal news outlet, and one from a conservative media outlet) and then write an essay of 750 to 1,250 words that compares and contrasts the coverage of the topic among your sources.  Your essay should answer the following questions: 1) Which source offers the most accurate and informative coverage of the issue? 2) How do they support their points? 3) How do they present other points of view? 4) How do they utilize the techniques outlined in “How to Detect Propaganda”?

General Points:

  • You do not need to take every propaganda device into account, but you should incorporate at least 2 devices into your analysis.
  • Do not simply present information from your sources; you need to evaluate your sources!
  • You can either use an issue that you have already researched during this unit or choose another issue entirely.
  • Do not write about abortion, the death penalty, or gun control.  I have already read too many papers on these subjects.

Criteria for Success:

  • You need to articulate a clear thesis in which you state which one of your sources offers the most informative coverage of your issue and why.  
  • Each paragraph needs to have a clear topic sentence that presents a claim for the paragraph to support.
  • You need to support your assertions with direct quotes from your articles and analyze this information to explain how it supports your contentions.
  • You need to have 1 article from a mainstream media source, 1 from a conservative news outlet, and 1 from a liberal media outlet.
  • Your in-text citations and Works Cited page need to meet MLA guidelines
  • You need to carefully proofread your essay to eliminate grammatical errors, misspelled words, and punctuation mistakes.
