Examining the News

Welcome to Module 3

After you have completed this module, you will be able to critically analyze a news article by examining the perspective(s) from which it is written. You'll learn to deepen your understanding of the article's perspective by considering four questions:

  1. By whom, and for what audience, was the news produced?
  2. What were the political influences over its production?
  3. What were the economic influences over its production?
  4. What sources of information were relied upon in writing the news?
