Identify an international news story involving a conflict between two nations or cultural groups, such as clashes between Israelis and Palestinians. Locate on the web a newspaper report of the event from within each of the countries or cultures involved. Note differences in the way the event is reported. Now, find a report of the event in a newspaper in a third, distant country. (For example, compare reports from the Jerusalem Post, the Palestine Chronicle, and the New York Times.) Does the third report seem to favor one of the two original reports? If so, would you conclude that the third report is biased toward one side or that one of the original reports was simply inaccurate? Explain how and why you reached that conclusion. (You might use World Press Review as an alternative source of data; they present contrasting articles on a given story. See the link on this book’s website.)
