In class on Wednesday we will be talking about various sources for psychological information and how the same information can be reported in very different ways depending on the source. Several years ago, the findings from an article on corporal punishment published in the journal Pediatrics received considerable press (indeed, the Yahoo article included below was included on Facebook as a trending search). For homework you will read two popular media accounts of the findings from this study, along with the original article.
1) Early life violence tied to mental disorders: study (Reuters)
2) Spanking linked to mental illness, says study (Sarah B. Weir, Yahoo)
3) Physical punishment and mental disorders: Results from a nationally representative US Sample (Afifi, T.O., Mota, N.P., Dasiewicz, P., MacMillan, H.L., & Sareen, J., Pediatrics)
After reading the three articles, prepare a brief (approximately 1 page, typed and double-spaced, 12 point font) response paper where you compare and contrast the three readings. In what ways do the Reuters (Reading #1) and Yahoo (Reading #2) articles provide a similar/different description of the research findings? Do you detect any biases in the reporting from Articles 1 and 2? Having read the original Pediatrics publication, how accurate would you say the Reuters/Yahoo articles were in reporting the research findings? HINT: At least one of them is not super accurate.
