comparing and contrasting a news story from at least three different media sources and evaluating the presentation of information in each source.

Your assignment this week is to write a News Compare/Contrast Paper. You will need to compare and contrast the same news story from at least three types of media (i.e Television Broadcast, Radio spot, Online News Article, Newspaper Article). Social media platforms do not count as a source. News outlets may post a story on social media but direct you back to their site for you to read the full story. You need to access sources from news outlets (stories written by journalists). For example, you might look at an Internet news page, watch a televised news package (that you can also find online), listen to a podcast news program, and/or read a local paper. If you are using a newspaper, you need to actually pick up a hard copy of the newspaper. When you find an article on a newspaper outlet’s website, that is considered an online article. The way a story is written, specifically the limitations, is significant for an actual newspaper article compared to an online article.
You will need to document when, where, and how you viewed the news story
Share what was included in the presentation of the story (information, sources, links, details, images, etc.).
You need to include how that information was presented- from the reporter, an image, a video/interview, etc.
You also need to discuss how the different news media mediums were similar and different in how they told the news story. Some questions you can consider are:
What facts were included in each story?
What sources did they use to tell the story?
How did the presentation of the information differ?
Did each story include some of the same information?
How was the information organized?
Was the information presented objectively?
This paper should be two full pages (with no heading on your paper)
Also, within the document you need to provide links to the sources you used (when you use them) and a works cited page.
You will also want to submit the Evaluating News sheet attached. Next week you will start using the News Planning Strategy sheet for your assignments. This week you will be using the Evaluating News Writing document to evaluate the sources you use for this assignment.
You will submit your Evaluating News Writing and your Compare and Contrast paper as one document. Place the Evaluating News first and then your Compare and Contrast paper.
Requirements: 2 pages
