Americans make up a large and ideologically diverse audience that is rapidly increasing its demand for media and political communications. This has led to debates over media bias, the impact of media ownership, and the impact of partisan news sites. Articulate a defensible claim or thesis on whether media analysis and commentary influence political views. Steps: 1. Select an article from within the last month that expresses political opinions or commentary. Levitz, Eric. “3 Reasons Pelosi Should Take Trump’s $1.8 Trillion Stimulus Deal.” Intelligencer , Intelligencer, 13 Oct. 2020, nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/10/3- reasons-pelosi-should-take-trumps-deal-on-stimulus-checks.html. Accessed 30 Oct. 2020. 2. Write a one-paragraph summary and analysis of the article, including specific examples from the article that demonstrate specific media bias. Identify at least one example as agenda-setting, framing, priming, or selection bias.
