Purpose of this assignment

Purpose of this assignment

  • To make you aware of the different perspectives on the news that different media organisations have

  • To create awareness of how the sources you use can colour a story


What do you need to do

What do you need to do?

  • Take a major news event ( ie US election, Chinese election, Obama’s visit to Burma)

  • Take three stories coming from two different news organisations -a western international news organisation, and a local news organisation and compare them.


What do you need to compare

What do you need to compare?

  • First explain what the event being reported is and then which two news stories you are comparing.

  • Write a line or two about the news organisations whose stories you are analysing

  • Are the news angles the same?

  • Are the sources the same?

  • Is the tone in both stories the same- or is there a slant?

  • Are both factual?

  • Any other thoughts?
