Question Description

Research Paper Documenting the Media Revolution: Mass media is redefining itself at a speed and depth unmatched in human history. Basic definitions of various long-established mass media are rapidly evolving to include digital formats that would have seemed the stuff of science fiction a few years ago. Furthermore, as mass media becomes more pervasive and powerful, its impact on individuals and the larger society have increasingly become topics of scholarly research. Your paper will be written about one of the mass media topics listed below. Choose a topic that interests you and for which you can find a variety of high quality sources.1. Presidential Politics and the Internet:1.1 How is social media replacing broadcast media as the way that presidential candidates get their views distributed quickly?1.2 How is the Internet leading to a greater polarization of political thought among voter groups?1.3 Is the Internet undermining the role of traditional journalism? If so, in what ways?1.4 You predict along with the experts. How is the Internet changing American presidential Politics?2. Fake News, Fake Imagesand Deepfakes2.1 In 2016, deliberately untrue news articles became a cause for concern. What are some examples of fake news articles, and what damage are they believed to have done?2.2 Altered photos and video of prominent people have been circulated for some time now. What are some examples of fake images (photos or video), and what damage are they believed to have done?2.3 What are Deepfakes?How are Deepfakesexpected to make it harder for us to perceive what is real and what is not?2.4 You be the News Consumer: What can you do to make sure that the news articles, images and video you see are grounded in fact?3. Free Speech and Hate Speech on Campus3.1 Describe some incidents where controversial speakers have been unable to speak (they have been disinvited, threatened or shouted down) at college and university campuses. What does this have to do with the “Heckler’s Veto”?3.2 What have the courts ruled in regard to limiting “hate speech” in the United States? What have some colleges and universities done to regulate hate speech?3.3 Are students guaranteed First Amendment speech and press rights? Are these rights absolute? Describe some of the notable Supreme Court decisions on this topic.3.4 You be the Attorney: What rules should Glendale College put in place regarding controversial speakers?What rules (if any) should Glendale College put in place regarding hate speech? (The idea is to be compliant with the law and to minimize the possibility of lawsuits.)This paper will be an analysis based upon your research. Research the four questions as they pertain to your research topic. Divide your paper into six segments: A. Introduction, B. Answer to Question 1 C. Answer to Question 2D. Answer to Question 3E. Answer to Question 4F. Conclusion Find credible sources to research your answers. You will be graded on the quantity and quality of your sources, and how well you use them in your text. Cite your sources, MLA style, as you use them in the text. Be sure to use full MLA-style citation information in your works cited section. Students who merely provide a list of web addresses will be marked down.Length: Around 1500 words (plus works cited section).ResearchThe depth and quality of your research matters. Citing your textbook or what is said during class really isn’t impressive in a college research paper. Your research should branch out beyond the classroom and the textbook. Dictionaries and encyclopedias (including Wikipedia) have some value as background information, but should not be cited as sources in the text. Be careful about using web sites as sources; many of them are not credible. If you cannot clearly state who is the writer of the material on the web site and what qualifies that person or persons to be an authority on the subject, then you probably do not have a credible source.There is no “correct” opinion about any of the research topics. Whatever your topic and your opinion on it, make sure that you find credible sources that support your case. Remember: (1) more sources are better than fewer, (2) high-quality sources are better than low-quality sources, and (3) cited sources that clearly enhance your paper are better than sources that make no apparent impact on the text.
