Scholar Notes April 10 th FWIS 147 Hang Shu Bowman, James. "Press & Prejudice." New Criterion , no. 3, 2016, p. 54. EBSCOhost, ezproxy.rice.edu/login?url= ? direct=true&db=edsglr&AN=edsgcl.470999770&site=eds-live&scope=site. This paper reviews the relation between Trump and media, especially critiques posted by newspapers such as the Washington post. It points out that media can be biased to follow the party it chooses. 1. During Trump’s campaign, the Washington post portrayed Trump as incapable of being a president. The article in the Washington post describes the first presidential debate using the sentence that “It’s beyond debate that Donald Trump is unfit to be president”. (p.2) 2. The author believes that these newspapers have a predisposition that is formed from their political views. The political standpoint of the newspapers such as the Washington post determines that the news articles are against Trump. 3. Because people are used to the media’s obsessions with scandals, people are constantly focusing on news ones and forgetting the old ones. 4. It is hard to objectively identify the validity of the newspaper articles and the possible effects of these biased news reports on the public opinion are still limited. 5. The similar event occurred in European media as well. “Three weeks before polling day, to a question suggesting that most “experts” were backing “Remain.” “I think,” said Mr. Gove, who at the time was the Lord Chancellor but also a principal spokesman for the “Leave” campaign, “people in this country have had enough of experts.” (p.3) The media analysis follows the viewpoint of the elite class and publicize the idea of “remaining in the EU”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
