Consider outlining two possible stories or substories that are now being circulated.
How are these positions present in the language of politicians, commentators, and
regular folk? What are people debating about? Of course, it will be easier if you
identify one angle or substory about the event you investigate.
Then research to determine which version is, in your opinion, the better, fairer story.
To help make your case, you can critique the representations of the event that you find
less worthy, as well as find evidence in support of the story you prefer. Make sure to
provide your reasons for choosing and writing the story you would promote.
So that you get a broad picture of the evolving scene, you should consult journalistic
resources from the left, the right, and the center. If you narrow your substory well, it may be
possible to use three good resources: each one from the left, right, and center, from which
you can show the different evolving stories and either to suggest which is preferable or to
create a possible fourth version.
You should use MLA documentation, including in-text citations and a works cited section.
