Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements
Prepare a 500+ word response, supported by scholarly literature, addressing each of the following:
• You have just been hired as the news director of a local TV station and given a 5-year, “can’t be fired for any reason” contract. Station management has informed you that they want a more “honest” portrayal of local crime and the justice system. Detail the steps you would take to carry out this directive.
• These steps should be justified based upon the readings and lectures you have been exposed to in this course. A clear understanding of the impediments to carrying out more complete coverage must be discussed, along with how you will overcome these.
• You might also want to search the Web for pages that discuss local TV news stations that have attempted to change their crime coverage to be less sensationalistic.
