The Liberal Media” is a common phrase that you hear from pundits- both identified Democrats and Republicans- but, is it ‘liberal (i.e. aligned with the Democrats) as we would think it is?
I would like you to watch this report on polarized media and respond to it and the question, does the media have a liberal bias? Why?
Disclaimer: This is a more politically charged assignment so, I understand that some people’s politics will play a role in your answer- and that’s okay. I will be grading this on a 1-5 scale (represented in a grade percentage) in terms of the following:
– Competency; attention to detail/ absence of pre-established partisan talking points; demonstration of understanding the situation; and, nuance and thoroughness of the response.
– 5 grade is the equivalent of an A; 4 grade is equivalent to a B; 3 grade is equivalent to a C; 2 grade is equivalent to a D; 1-0 grade is equivalent to an F.
