HUM/176 Jessica Blocker Final Week 9 Part One: Write a 500- to 550-word essay response for Part One. Comprehensive writing skills must be used. Choose one of the three media problems below as the topic for your essay response. You are the news director of a local television station. The city council has just voted to close city parks 3 days a week to save money. Meanwhile, a major celebrity has died. The park story has greater effect on your viewers, but the celebrity death will get bigger ratings? Which do you make your lead story and why? Your news organization is owned by a massive corporation that also owns an electronics company. It has learned that the refrigerators the electronics company makes are fire hazards and have destroyed several homes. How do you cover the story and how do you acknowledge that you are owned by the same corporation? You are the chief editor of a large metropolitan daily newspaper. One of your reporters is caught fabricating sources and making up facts. How do you handle the situation, from disciplining the reporter to explaining it to your readers? Solve the problem using what you have learned. Solutions must be realistic. If you think cable news networks do not have enough foreign coverage, for example, it is not enough to say you will simply hire more reporters. You must say where that money will come from. Be creative, both in the identification of the problem and, especially, in the solution. Include the following: The role of media in delivering news to the public the significance of immediate news media delivery on culture The social responsibilities of news media. Ethical and legal considerations in the online world The importance of ethical and legal compliance in online interactions The various information delivery methods to audiences Advantages and disadvantages of modern media delivery The changes in media over the last century Part Two: Write a 500- to 550-word essay response for Part Two. Comprehensive writing skills must be used. Explain the effect of relationships among television, movies, and electronic games with culture. Include the following: How culture is reflected in movies and television The relationship between television and movies and culture The effect of electronic games on culture The most influential and important games released to the general public within the last few years Controversial issues over modern electronic games Post your paper as an attachment. Include both essay responses in the same document. Separate your two essay responses by adding the headings Part One and Part Two.

    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.
