Media Log Description
Introduction- Describe your current relationship with media (By 718 am, 11/19)
Week #1- (By 718 am 12/3) A minimum of 2 posts. One post is entirely open (free choice). The second post must address one of the following:
Choose a current topic/story in the news and examine the language being used by 2 different media (news) outlets reporting on the topic/story. Make sure to link to both sources. This post is similar to the proposition activity we did in class.
Keeping in mind the main ideas of “Politics and the English Language”, seek out a piece of political ‘speech’. This can be a recent news editorial about politics (the piece should be a decent length) , recent interview with a politician, a recent speech given by a politician, etc. Using your knowledge of Orwell’s essay, evaluate the piece and describe if it is evidence of “the decay of language” or does it avoid the abuses Orwell outlines in the essay.
