Objectivity in Journalism
You will choose mainstream American newspapers or online news sites to complete this scavenger hunt of objectivity in journalism. Do not choose blogs, high school newspapers, foreign news sites, or highly partisan sites.
Find three different articles from mainstream American newspapers or online news sites that each provide one of the following:
An example of New Journalism, in which an author is very subjective about a topic and uses literary or fiction-like language to depict a taboo or historical topic or person. [NOTE: Do not simply choose an editorial. Not all opinion writing is emblematic of New Journalism.]
An example of author bias, in which an author provides subjective opinion only. It need not be political. Author bias could be an editorial or a review of a book or movie.
An example of bad evidence, in which an author uses correlation instead of causation, logical fallacies, or inaccurate or insufficient data to misrepresent evidence.
For each article, cite the following textual support in a paragraph (3 total):
A lead-in to a quote
A quote showing your evidence
An explanation of the quote in which you point out the author’s lack of objectivity or bias
Write a final paragraph in which you discuss the importance of objectivity in the media and ways in which the public can demand more of it from the media.
Provide citations and a works cited of your information as support.
