Over the course of two days, go online to the Websites of three daily news outlets and follow how each, in its news pages, treats a particular story of national or international significance. One news outlet should be a local city outlet-perhaps the Web site of your hometown newspaper. (Note: The reporting should originate not with a syndicated newswire, like the Associated Press, but with the outlets own staff writer.) One news outlet should have a national readership, like the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times. The third outlet should be any news source of your choice (and it needn’t exist in print).
Develop a comparison-and-contrast synthesis that leads to an argument about the news coverage. In making notes towards such a synthesis, you’ll want to do the following:
• Define the news story: the who, what, when, where of the issue.
• Develop at least three criteria: Do the outlets report the same facts? Do the outlets color these facts with an editorial slant? Do the outlets agree on significance of the issue?
• As you take notes, point to specific passages.
• Review your notes. What patterns emerge? Can you draw any conclusions? Write a thesis that reflects your assignment.
• Using your notes and guided by your thesis, write a comparison-and-contrast-paper.
• Be sure that your paper answers the “So what?” question. What is the point of your synthesis?
