Coursework Update

I handed in the second draft of my essay about 'Political Bias In The News'. It was pretty easy writing about representation and institution and I've managed to get 6 pages out of just analysing Fox News, BBC News and The Daily Show for how the presenters look and which political ideology they represent etc. However finding secondary sources is proving to be an uphill struggle because surprisingly, it appears that not a lot of academics have wrote about political bias in the news.

The website is almost finished, all that's left for me to do is finish writing one of the news stories and tweaking a few more small details to make it look more similar to The Onion which my website is partially based off of. Making the website has been more enjoyable simply because it has more creative freedom, therefore allowing me to flex my writing skills and give a voice to my angst ridden, socialist and generally pessimistic outlook on the world.
