Bias in Balanced Media

- Bias in Balanced Media In traditional American media, we as viewers have given mass media expectations to meet in order to meet our demands.

We expect them to be nonpartisan and neutral, providing equal coverage of either side without having any form of bias towards one end.

Truman Capote's In Cold Blood as Literary Journalism

- Literary journalism is criticized as being the bad child of "the modern age of media and hype"(Yagoda, "In"). But, looking back through the ages, there are many examples of what is now called literary journalism, or blurring the line between fact and fiction. What has changed " . . . is not the practice of literary journalism but expectations about truth" ("In"). In Postmodern American Fiction, the editors make the point that Truman Capote's " In Cold Blood (1965) illustrates how the postmodern inclination to blur the boundary between standard journalism and fiction could itself create a new layer of narrative tension within the bounds of the tradition novel"(125)....   [tags: In Cold Blood Essays]

The Yellow Kids

- “In America the President reigns for four years, and journalism governs for ever and ever.” Oscar Wilde never spoke truer words. The aforementioned ability to govern “for ever and ever” comes from journalistic sensationalism, a craft perfected by newspaper owners and journalists Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst at the dawn of the twentieth century. Sensationalism counts for only one of the numerous ties between the career rivals who, in an effort to distinguish themselves from each other, ironically knotted themselves together in journalism history....   [tags: Journalism]

In the beginning of this book, the murders and victims seem unrelated, but as the book moves ahead, the relationship becomes clear.

Essay on Freedom and Fate in Moll Flanders

- Freedom and Fate in Moll Flanders Are people who believe in freewill simply ignorant of the reasons of their actions. In the context of Defoe's Moll Flanders, this question may result in considerable debate. Was Flanders free or was she predetermined to live a wicked and improper life mired in years of penitence. Did the whorish behavior of Moll's mother predetermine Moll's actions.

Notions of Freedom

- Notions of freedom and captivity abound in the writings of Frederick Douglass and Walt Whitman. As contemporaries both men wrote much on the issue of slavery in the United States, Frederick Douglass’s Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass depicts his quest for freedom from captivity. Walt Whitman celebrates the freedom he sees as inherent in America through his verse. The work of both, however, can be seen to have been captive to political considerations of the period. According to Carl Martin Lindner, “Freedom is central to Whitman’s vision of life – the artistic life, the individual life, and the life of the society.” The notion that freedom is intrinsic to American life is a centra...   [tags: captivity, Whitman, Frederick]
