For your paper, explain what you consider the term news to refer to, and what you think its role is in modern American society. Do people need it? Do people like to consume it? How? What are your habits for acquiring news, and how do you think they compare to other citizens habits?
Next, remember back to when you considered the many ways and formats that are used to convey news today. Discuss in what ways this variety of news delivery complicates the news-gathering and reporting work for journalists, and reasons why this might matter.
From there, consider the ways that people obtain their news through social media. How might the criteria for what is newsworthy differ between news in this format and news as it is found in more traditional legacy formats such as a print newspaper or a daily television news broadcast? What is true or trustworthy? Do these differences matter? Why or why not?
Your paper should be approximately 4 pages long, double spaced. You should apply specific principles, concepts, and tools of media literacy as you write. Whenever you refer to content from the book or presentations, you should explain/define the terms you are using, showing that you understand them, and provide an in-text citation for where they came from. Your paper should also have a reference list, which does not count towards the page limit (the title page does not count towards it either).

- Many of the readings from the week on the history of the animal protection movement compared the animal rights and protection efforts to the Civil Rights Movement in both the tactics used and in their public policy approaches. Compare and contrast the Civil Rights Movement to the animal movement in terms of strategy, public perception, and legislation. Discuss the advantages and weaknesses (whether in terms of public perception, your own personal views, or otherwise) of such comparisons.
