ASSIGNMENT FOR PAPER #1: Analysis of Media Bias in THREE NEWS ARTICLES: For this paper, you will construct an analysis that focuses on media bias (or fair reporting) in three articles that appear in publications on the Left, Middle and Right sides of the Media Bias Chart (3 articles total). In your paper, show how bias or fair reporting work differently on all three sides of the spectrum, and give specific examples and frequent quotes to support your analysis. How do sources on the Left differ from sources on the Right? Do both sides state actual facts, or are facts missing or distorted? Don’t be afraid to call the writers out when you see unfair use of slanting or propaganda that twists or misrepresents the facts. Give your educated opinion about the levels of bias, lack of bias, fair or unfair examples, or any other aspect of these articles. Construct a clear, strong thesis, and organize carefully; each paragraph needs to begin with a clear (creative, interesting–that part is up to you) topic sentence. QUOTE from the articles in your body paragraphs, and analyze as you go. You are reading Chapter One in The Structure of Argument this week. What points from the chapter strike you as relevant as you look at these articles? Include some of these points in the paper. Beyond these basic instructions, take the paper in a direction that is important and relevant–YOU are the writer here, and you are analyzing as an educated person with a unique approach to the readings. Consider the Media Bias List; we will talk more about this in class. The paper needs to be your own analysis: a mixture of references to the articles and your own opinions about and analysis QUOTE from the articles as you write about them; do not assume that your reader has read the articles. CITE the at the end, using the Titles, Writers, Publication and Date of publication in a short Works Cited Sheet. OPTION: You can use the articles we read and discussed, or you can find three articles on your own. Make sure to use the Media Bias Chart and find articles about the same topic in 3 different publications (one from the Left, one from the Neutral area, and one from the Right). POST: Explain the three articles you are using and your approach. Include at least two paragraphs of your Rough Draft, and give feedback about other people’s ideas and paragraphs. What do you think of the writer’s main idea? Responses to the articles? Analysis?
The essays should not be long–no more than 2 pages (500 word minimum). Read the document and respond to the questions at the end. Number your responses to correspond to the questions and answer each question in a new paragraph. Each paragraph should include support drawn directly from the source. I look for more than a simple factual answer to the question. Tell me why you think your answer is correct. In other words justify your answer from the document itself or by logical reasoning about its contents and the events that brought it about. Show me that you have thought seriously about what you have read. The Material of History The continuing mythic power in our own day of the historical myths embodied in monuments, museums, memorials, and rituals is the subject of this essay by Fath Davis Ruffins. This work argues that the failed effort to win public support for an African-American museum in the nation’s capital reflected many of the competing historical visions and political agenda’s among blacks as well as between blacks and whites. Based on your analysis of the essay address the following questions: 1) What are the main issues surrounding the building of an African-American museum in Washington, D.C.? 2) How does this debate over when, where, and how to create a museum reflect “the politics of memory”?
Every day, millions of economic choices are made by people—from what brand of soap to buy to how many employees to hire for a factory. Microeconomics provides us with the tools, models, and concepts to better understand individual choices in the marketplace and how resource allocation is determined at the micro level. The decisions made by individuals and households impact the market and influence decisions made by firms. Firms use these tools as a way to determine pricing, output, and profit maximization. As a student of economics, you can use the microeconomic principles to gain an understanding of how firms and individuals make decisions and also to make your own conclusions about actions we can take to improve those decisions.Now, imagine that you are a consultant to the firm of your choice. The firm has hired you to advise it on how it can ensure its future success as a company in its current market. To do this, you will write a research paper analyzing market and business data to explain how the core microeconomic principles impact the sustainability of the firm and what actions it can take to ensure success. Specifically the following critical elements must be addressed for this introduction paper: I.Using the publicly traded company operating in the U.S. market that is currently in business.Write a one paper that includes the following elements for your chosen firm: a)Outline the purpose of your final project research paper and explain how it will inform your conclusion. b)Summarize the history of your chosen firm and provide an overview for what it does and what goods/services it sells.

Note: The discussion activity is based on Case 24.1, It’s Not My Fault, on pages 1075–1076 of the textbook. 1. Read the case information given below, and then follow the instructions for completing the discussion activity. “Case 24.1, It’s Not My Fault” Cabinets, Inc. is a large manufacturer of modular kitchen cabinets, sold primarily to builders and developers. The company uses a standard cost system. Standard production costs have been developed for each type of cabinet; these costs and any cost variances are charged to the production department. A budget also has been developed for the sales department. The sales department is credited with the gross profit on sales (measured at standard costs) and is charged with selling expenses and any variations between budgeted and actual selling expenses. In early April the manager of the sales department asked the production department to fill a rush order of kitchen cabinets for a tract of 120 homes. The sales manager stated that the entire order had to be completed by May 31. The manager of the production department argued that an order of this size would take 12 weeks to produce. The sales manager answered, “The customer needs it on May 31, or we don’t get the business. Do you want to be responsible for our losing a customer who makes orders of this size?” Of course, the production manager did not want to take that responsibility. Therefore, he gave in and processed the rush order by having production personnel work overtime through April and May. As a result of the overtime, the performance reports for the production department in those months showed large, unfavorable labor rate variances. The production manager, who in the past had prided himself on coming in under budget, now has very ill feelings toward the sales manager. He also has stated that the production department will never again accept a rush order. 2. In Discussion Forum 5, post your response to the following questions. Please title your posting “Case 24.1/[Your Name].” Read and comment on your classmates’ postings. 1. b. Identify any problem that you see in the company’s standard cost system or in the manner in which cost variances are assigned to the responsible managers. c. Make recommendations for changing the cost accounting system to reduce or eliminate any problems that you have identified.
