My final paper will be taking about two stories that focus on the spending cut that the House of Representatives passed this past weekend.
The two news outlets that I will be looking at are truth-out.org and foxnews.com. The headline from truth-out is, “Cecile Richards on Friday’s House Vote Defunding Planned Parenthood:’We Need You Today, Tomorrow, and the Next Day…'”, and the FoxNews headline is, “GOP-Controlled House Passes Spending Cut Bill”.
I plan on using a couple different types of media research for this paper. The research that I do will primarily be under the qualitative umbrella. This is because I will be taking a close look at the two articles through a lens that focuses not on numbers and scientific facts, but more so the text and the implications of how it is written. Taking a look at the framing of the stories will be very significant for my paper in addition in to how the news outlets used their political alignment to frame the articles.
