For this assignment you will examine a specific case of media influence over the political world.
Choose a specific political issue dominating a present news cycle. The purpose of your analysis is to reveal how this particular issue is framed across the four different forces of social integration and the social construction of reality. (Note: The case study provided in the lecture discussing the framing of the response to recession can provide you with a way to approach the organization of your topic.)
Explain the choice of media text that serves as an example of framing a particular political issue serving the specific interests of the framer.
Explain the ways in which media influence of the political world operates to create a spectacle of political inclusion for average viewers/voters. In what ways does this framing disserve or inhibit the inclusion of average audiences into the social construction of reality?
In the critical phase of your argumentative essay, include a discussion of the empirical evidence/facts omitted from the mass media framing of the issue you chose to analyze.
Include at least three references from outside sources, citing in proper APA style.
