• What is the candidate saying about herself or himself that is not being covered in the other media and platforms? • What are legacy and digital media reporting that differs from the candidate's own media? • How significant are these differences in presentation? What word choices shape possible differences in interpretation (for examples Righttolife v. Righttochoose or Climate change v. Global warming)? Are there some clear and glaring differences? • If you were an engaged voter, on which sources would you rely for information about your candidate, and why? • How much of the coverage seems to be factbased, and how much seems to be opinion, as best you can determine by comparing various sources? Does there seem to be any pattern in this factversusopinion dichotomy based on the type of medium; that is, is opinion more common in the information presented in the candidate’s “own” media versus content in social media versus content in legacy media or on strictly digital news sites, or is just the opposite the case? • Do you have suggestions for either the candidate or the legacy and digital media about improvements that could lead to a better informed and engaged electorate? • If you were planning to vote in this election, what have you learned about the media you should follow in order to understand the race and the candidate, and to help you make an informed decision on election day? You cannot answer all of these questions in the allotted space. Remember that these questions are meant to be suggestive. Your data might lead you to ask and answer different questions and make different comparisons. However, the paper MUST compare and contrast the information in the four areas under investigation: legacy and digital media, the candidate's own platforms, and social media platforms. You do not need to clear with me your selection of a candidate or the sample of media you choose to analyze. If you want guidance, however, please just ask. If your sample is a weak one, your paper will inevitably suffer. Once you have organized your thoughts, write the paper, then rewrite it, and then rewrite it again. Do not under any circumstances turn in a paper that is a first draft, written the night before it is due. You cannot pull that off. Believe me. The paper may be no longer than 1250 words (the absolute maximum, no exceptions), and no shorter than 1000 words. Double space, and leave ample margins for comment by me. When you submit your paper you MUST include the word count. You will lose 5 points for failing to do so. The paper is due IN CLASS on Wednesday, October 7. I will return it to you with a grade and comments on Monday, November 9. Those of you who earn a grade of A, A or B+ need not rewrite. (If you earn an A you should not rewrite.) If you earn a B or below you MUST rewrite. If you earn an A or B+ you may rewrite if you choose to do so. We know from past experience that the real improvement in your writing will come after you read detailed criticism and have the chance to rewrite. That is why we have structured the assignment in this manner. We do not expect that many of you are writing at an "A" level as required at the Newhouse School. We want to get you to that level. That is one major goal of this assignment. The rewrite is due IN CLASS on Wednesday, November 30. I will grade it a second time and return it at the final exam, if not before. The rewrite must be considerably better to merit a higher grade, so you should take pains with the rewrite and pay close attention to the written comments and the line editing on the first draft. The first draft is worth 25% of the final course grade. The rewrite is worth 15% of the final course grade. If you do not rewrite (meaning you earned a B+ or better on the first draft), this 15% will be the same as the grade on the first draft. Given that the first draft is worth 25% of the final course grade, do not blow it off and assume you will take care of problems in the rewrite, once you receive my criticism. The first draft should be as good as you can make it. If it is not, your grade will suffer. If you have questions about how to proceed, see me BEFORE you write.
