“How does advertising influence content in a publication?”

Directions: This semester, we’ve learned about what “mass media” is and how it works. We’ve dabbled in ethics, reporting, various mediums of media and more. Your task is to choose one subject you’d like to investigate and write a five-page paper about it. Pose your two potential topics as a question to be answered or a problem to be solved.

For example:

“How does advertising influence content in a publication?”

“Who are the most famous Asian-American journalists of all time?”

“How did the media influence the 2016 election?”

1) Your paper cannot use “I” – the first person – in any capacity

2) Your paper must be five typewritten pages

3) Your paper must include a works cited page with all sources used
