With all the events that have recently taken place including the death of Michael Brown, the rise of terrorist group Isis, as well as many other stories pertaining to gender, race, and religion it might seem obvious that media has a great deal to do with much of the animosity felt by various different groups within the United States. In order to get a good perspective on this it is important to find coverage of these events from various news outlets conservative and liberal alike. In my podcast I will be discussing several different articles that I’ve found useful for showing how the media uses specific language and undertones in their newscasts and articles in order to stir up feelings of unrest in people.
