Current Events Assignment February 17-21

Excellent job on the last assignment! This time we are going to try to look for a specific instance of bias in a news story. Follow these directions:

  1. Find a news story that has obvious bias.
  2. Write a blog post and hyperlink back to the story.
  3. Copy/paste the part of the story you think shows bias onto your post.
  4. Explain why you think it is biased.
  5. Bonus points if you can correctly identify a cultural bias :)
