INVESTIGATIVE RESEARCH ESSAY Assignment Breakdown: One of the goals of this course is to see that censorship exists around us. Even though we may not be fully aware of how much censorship affects us daily, this assignment asks us to dig a little deeper into current examples of censorship and report on them for an audience. This assignment asks that you locate a recent news story from an independent news source, determine through research if it has been censored or altered, and then discuss the possible reasons for the censorship. 1. Find an article A censored article reports information that the public has a right and need to know. Start by searching independent news sources to find possible censored articles. Use the following links to search independent news sources. Find a news story on a topic that interests you. The news story must come from one of the following sources below. http://www.projectcensored.org/independent-news-links/ http://projectcensored.org/independent-periodicals-webzines/ 2. Evaluate Your article’s strength The strongest articles are important, timely, fact-based, well documented, and underreported. Once you have found a possible article, test its quality by considering these questions: A. Is it important? - The more people that the article affects, the more important it is. Be careful to consider indirect impacts. For example, a story about electronic waste disposal in Africa might seem like it only involves the people exposed to the toxic waste. But the problem of electronic waste disposal includes Western consumers (mostly North Americans and Europeans) who discard as much as 40 million tons of electronic waste each year. So, the story involves a wider circle of people and is more important than it might first seem. B. Is it timely? - Recent articles on older events will be considered if they report new, important information. Try to keep your story as recent as possible. Aim for articles that have been published in the last 6 months. C. Is it fact-based and well documented? - The article’s accuracy and credibility is crucial. How many different sources does the article use? How credible is each source? An article based on many reliable sources is harder to dispute than one based on a single good source or several biased sources. If your article cites other published work (for example, a scientific study, government document, or another news story), track back to that source and read it. Does your article accurately depict the original article? D. Has the corporate media ignored or under-reported the story? - Evaluate your article’s coverage by using a news database to search for corporate coverage of it. Check with librarians to learn what news Assignment adapted from Project Censored databases you can access. Experience shows that Google News is not always reliable; use it as a last resort. The clearest “censored” articles are ones that corporate media have completely ignored. Candidate articles that received some corporate coverage may still be considered “censored” if corporate coverage leaves the reader with an incomplete or distorted understanding of the article. E. As you research your candidate article, be alert for related articles that: - contain information contrary to your original article; were published before your original article, or; contain more complete information than your first article. You may decide a second article is better than your first, in which case continue your work now using the second article. Or you may conclude that the second article supports the first and should be included along with it. Assignment Guidelines: Below is how the assignment should be organized. Title This captures the story’s most important point in approximately five to ten words. Summary (150-200 words maximum) → The first paragraph should provide a specific, concise and factual summary of the article’s most important point. Use a summary lead to place this essential information up front. Your first sentence should introduce what happened, where, and when. → The body paragraphs should go into more detail, elaborating on the article’s main point and/or introducing secondary points. Good details might include who stands to benefit from the action or policy in question, as well as who (if anyone) it harms. → (A) final paragraph(s) should address corporate media coverage of the story. This is often as important as your article’s summary lead. It is essential that you do a thorough job of researching your article’s coverage using a reliable news database. If there is no corporate media coverage of your article, state so directly and indicate a date as of which this was true. If your article has gotten some corporate news coverage, then identify what corporate news organizations covered the article, and when. In this case be sure to describe how the independent news article you are summarizing goes beyond the coverage provided by the corporate media. If you cannot see a difference, you may need to reconsider whether your article is actually “censored”. References Following the summary, give a complete reference for the article using the most recent versions of either MLA or APA citation. If your summary draws on multiple stories, give a reference for each one. Evaluation This assignment will be evaluated based on the Category 10 rubric.

Topic: The extension of the operability of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
Thesis: The reference to FISA as a policy meant to equip security agencies with the tools needed
to secure the nation against the threat of terrorism is flawed and overlooks the Act’s
contravention of the Fourth Amendment through the invasion of privacy.

Invasion of Privacy now Legal: NSA’s Warrantless Surveillance Program Extended
In January 2018, the House of Representatives voted to extend the warrantless
surveillance program run by the National Security Agency for six years according to a report by
Wired. The previous year, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) had been a source of
controversy and public uproar following the revelation that the NSA, while fulfilling its mandate
to gather foreign intelligence, monitors without warrants internet activity, phone calls, text
messages among other communication of local residents who communicate with people outside
the country. The report by Wired adds that some of the data is obtained through companies such
as Google and Facebook which the NSA compels to provide private user information. While
passing the amendment, the House disregarded a proposed amendment that would have protected
the privacy of the United States’ residents by requiring the officials of the NSA to obtain
warrants before invading the privacy of the Americans by reading their messages and emails in
accordance with their Fourth Amendment Rights. While reporting the news, a New York Times
article reports that the House justified the enactment an...
