Coverage by of the news is not carried out by any monolithicorganization that gets to decide what is, and is not, the correct way to reportthe news. Today perhaps more than ever, the editorial or opinion piece of thenews is more apparent and widespread than it had been in the decades beforecable news, 24-hour-news cycles, and the rise of the Internet as a news source.This does not necessarily mean that the news has become any less impartial,simply that news organizations are more conscious of markets and demographics,the people they are trying to attract, than ever before. Find two articles that address the same issue produced bytwo different news sources (this cannot be the same AP story published bydifferent sources). For your initial posting, summarize what message eachwriter is trying to get across, and provide a brief analysis explaining whichpiece you feel is more effective and why. Be sure to include links for eacharticle in the posting.
