2. Define key concept: What is “objectivity” in news reporting? Consider at least two conflicting definitions.

3. Argue for your thesis by providing an ANALOGY along with your reasons and evidence. (textual references)

4. Consider Counter-arguments: What is your opposition’s best reasons and evidence against your thesis? Be sure to include a challenge and reply to your analogy.

5. Defend your position by refuting or synthesizing the opposition’s critique

Helpful considerations:

-Begin with the end or goal of democracy and the role the news must play to achieve that end/goal.

-Briefly characterize the main problem in the world of news and journalism today. [Note there are several, so be specific.]

-Define: “Objectivity” is a contested term at the moment. Consider the various of ways “objectivity” might be defined and clarify the conception/criteria you will use in your essay. When developing your thesis, consider that objectivity may be an ideal, a process, and/or the product.

-Consider how democracy might suffer (or be strengthened) if the news abandons the ideal of objectivity. What can objectivity or an alternative offer toward creating a better social epistemic environment?

-Consider & evaluate the evidence for objectivity in WWA, the assigned readings, and your personal experience: What can objective news offer to support a strong democracy? For example, how might it help/hurt you as a voter?

-Consider & evaluate the evidence for the counter-argument offered by the critics of objectivity in the the NPR forum, the SceneOn Radio episode, and Keane’s essay.

-Bonus: If relevant, make use of one of the dialectal fallacies featured this week: Backfire effect, Spinning, or Framing.
