BLOG Check Friday June 27th
This week we are focussing our attention on the concept of Media Bias. You will observe news reports and look for any biases or ¨exaggerated, unrealistic¨ information presented by reporters.
In this specific activity, you will analyze a part of a news item(s) presented by news media giant CNN on the topic of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370. Then, you will write an online comment to CNN and post it on your blogs reclaiming how and why they made those statements.
