COMPARE AND CONTRAST TWO NEWS STORIES IN TEXAS

3

Compare and contrast two news stories in Texas.
Introduction
There are different approaches that media houses usually cover and present events which
occur within a given community. Sometimes, the media houses fail to use the right approaches,
which in turn would help in the creation of a framework for instilling confidence from the
general public. In this case, there is a need to create a structure that is driven by honesty and
credibility. The main focus for this project is to compare and contrast two news articles presented
both from a local and national level on a given issue of concern happening or affecting the
community residing in Texas. The main idea behind this project is to gather facts that would be
used to facilitate decision making when it comes to the determination of the right sources which
would represent a given piece of information to the audience. There are various sources of
information that can be used by the audience to learn about the events happening in the
community. The main difference that exists is the credibility of each source.
Analysis
This project has selected the New York Times and The Texas Tribune as the two main
sources of information speaking about a recent event which occurred in Texas involving the
wider community. The story selected involves the recent requiem service for the recently slain
George Floyd. The presentation of the story has been approached using different angles by
various media houses in the country. Additionally, the presentation of the story, which has
differed from one media house to the other shed light on the effectiveness of each source and the
ability to exhibit the required levels of credibility in the process.
