This week we learned about framing theory. Our news media tends to frame the same issues in very different ways. In this activity you will examine the different frames used by two different news organizations to discuss a similar topic.

Standard expectations: As with every assignment in this class, be sure to respond to the following questions in your own words and succinctly (in as few words as possible).

Assignment:

  1. Think about the issue discussed in the headline you chose. What information do you currently have about this issue? (1-2 sentences: 1 point)
    1. What media sources does your information come from about this topic? Identify your media sources on the all-sides media bias chart above. Are they leaning left, center, right, or unknown? (1-2 sentences: 1 point).
  2. Using the information provided in the frame usage section of the book (pg. 144-145), discuss whether salience, availability, accessibility, or applicability are influencing your opinion about this issue. How? (2-4 sentences: 1 point).
  3. Read an article on the left discussing this issue. Is it discussing it in a favorable or unfavorable manner? Why do you think so? Provide specific examples in the article that support your view. (2-4 sentences: 1 point).
  4. Read an article on the right discussing this issue. Is it discussing it in a favorable or unfavorable manner? Why do you think so? Provide specific examples in the article that support your view. (2-4 sentences: 1 point).
