View a television newscast and an online newscast of your choice.

Write a 1,750 word paper that addresses the following:

·  Does either newscast use a marketing perspective to attract audiences? If so, how? If not, why not?

·  Are the sources used in the news stories appropriate or credible? Why or why not?

·  Do any of the news stories in the broadcast appear to be biased? If so, how did you recognize the bias? If not, how did the story appear to avoid bias?

·  Do any of the news stories include presentations of racial or gender stereotypes? If so, in what way?

·  Do any of the news stories appear to be fabricated? Why or why not?

·  Do any of the stories appear to be incomplete or require more context for viewers to fully understand the meaning?

·  If the newscast is biased in some way, what are your suggestions for making it more fair and balanced?

·  Do you think the World Wide Web and the Internet now affect political points of view to a greater extent than other media do? Provide a rationale for your position.

Format the paper consistent with APA guidelines.
