Conduct some research on the Internet about a current major story in the news. It can be international or national news. Find two different news sources that are telling this same story. Find one from a U.S. source, and then find a non-U.S. news source (ideally a non-Western source altogether). First, summarize the story and identify what two news sources you used. Discuss the similarities and differences of how the stories were told. Consider any bias that either of the news sources may have, and explain how those biases may affect the telling of the story. Hint: When trying to find the bias of a news source, consider any motivations that the news leadership may have for telling a story in a particular way. Historical? Political? Financial?
