Select a news article reporting on either the impeachment trial of President Trump, or his 2-4-20 State of the Union address, and review the article for content bias for one political orientation or another. You may include evidence of bias in the content the reporter chooses to focus on regarding the trial or the speech, and/or in how the reporter contextualizes the subject.

Presidential Donald trump impeachment trial article. Political divide in the United States at this time appears to be rather polarized. Research finds that citizens tend to get their news from sources that are consistent with ones political perspective, suggesting that reporting is biased, despite the fact that journalists are supposed to report objectively. (Editorials, of course, are another matter.) In this first current events critical analysis assignment you will select a news article reporting on either the impeachment trial of President Trump, or his 2-4-20 State of the Union address, and review the article for content bias for one political orientation or another. You may include evidence of bias in the content the reporter chooses to focus on regarding the trial or the speech, and/or in how the reporter contextualizes the subject. Specifically, in this short paper (3-5 pages, 12 point New Times Roman, double spaced, with section headers/sub-headers), you are to: A. Write a short introduction indicating why you selected the article that you did, and a basic thesis regarding its (un)biased reporting. (1 point) B. Review for evidence of each of the three types of intergroup discrimination – -Type 1–ingroup favoritism – Type 2–outgroup hostility, and – Type 3–the combined type Again, the evidence can be either primary source elements selected by the reporter, or the reporters contextual framing of the story. In your review, consider the evidence as it relates to the course text definitions of these types (summarized in the chapter 2 powerpoint, slides 12-14 ). (3 points): – Be sure to include at least one quote from the article for each type of discrimination (1.5 points) – If you do not find evidence of any particular type of discrimination in the the article reporting on the event (which is unlikely), you can substitute any observations of your own that you might have made in watching/listening to the trial or speech regarding relevant event elements that the reporter did not include. If you must do this, direct quotes from the event that demonstrate bias would be helpful, although not required; paraphrasing or describing behaviors should suffice. C. State and briefly discuss your overall assessment of whether the reporter presents an objective view that represents both political perspectives, or a biased view favoring one political orientation over another. (1 point) D. Consider some other theoretical aspect of intergroup discrimination as it is relevant to the article you reviewed, or to the trial or speech event per se. For example, how do you see either groupthink, regulatory focus, intergroup attributional bias, strength of group identification, etc. as relevant to the event or reporting of the event?)
