Write a summary of the overall ‘content’ of the 10 posts

Paper instructions

Blogs are an integral form of digital media today whereby anyone can be both a consumer and producer (creator) of blog content. In this assignment, students will explore the blogs of other writers who are tackling issues of new digital media.

For this assignment, students may investigate and select ONE of the following media-focused blogs to critique:

http://techcrunch.com/ (Links to an external site.)

http://mashable.com/ (Links to an external site.)

http://blog.gizmodo.com/ (Links to an external site.)

http://www.engadget.com/ (Links to an external site.)

http://yro.slashdot.org/ (Links to an external site.)

http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/ (Links to an external site.)

http://www.niemanlab.org/ (Links to an external site.)

Examine at least 10 entries on the same blog on related topics. Write a 2-4 page critique of the blog posts with a title page (not included in page count). The body of the paper should be double-spaced and formatted according to the APA Style guidelines-6th ed. (APA 6th Edition Guidelines (https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html)).

Be sure to write in the first person (use “I”) instead of the third person (he/she/they/we). In addition, in place of a ‘References’ page at the end, please list the blog site and the ten individual blog posts you are critiquing – Titles of each blog entry with URL links to the specific entries referenced in your writing. Please note that there are APA 6th ed. guidelines for citing websites on reference pages.

In your paper, address the following key questions:

Write a summary of the overall ‘content’ of the 10 posts (related topic).
How well did the blog posts adequately cover the topic(s) at hand?
What is the role of the author(s) – critic? evangelist? journalist?
Who is the intended audience?
Were there any evident biases in the blog posts? If yes, please give examples.
What are three positive aspects of the author(s)’ blog posts overall?
What are three suggestions for improving the blog posts overall? (e.g., in terms of coverage, fairness, depth, grammar, accuracy, etc.)

Comments are to focus on the substance of the blogs from an objective viewpoint (not personal attacks). Please explain your views with a strong rationale, evidence, and examples, as well as connections made to course readings and contemporary topics, where possible.
