hey guys-

for your media decoder paper, you need to find a controversial subject, and view it through the lens of three different websites, one from the “left,” one “center,” and one “right.” how does each take on your subject, how do they filter facts and leave out uncomfortable aspects of the problem that do not fit into their thesis?

the paper must have three footnotes and be in MLA format.

here are examples of lefty, righty, centrist websites:

right

http://www.newsmax.com
http://www.redstate.com
http://www.foxnews.com/

centrist

http://www.nytimes.com
http://abcnews.go.com/ 
http://www.cnn.com/
http://www.thedailybeast.com/ 

left

http://www.dailykos.com/
http://earthfirstnews.wordpress.com/
http://www.treehugger.com/ 

what other good new sites that don’t really fit into this left/right scheme can you find?

is there such a thing as “objective journalism?” and if so, who practices it?

can you find sites even further to left and right?
