XCOM 225 Week 6 Controversial Issues in
Entertainment Paper

Discuss a controversial issue you have seen in the
media, such as violence, unethical behavior, racial or religious
discrimination, drug use, or sexual content, in a 700- to 1,050-word paper.

Explain the nature of the
controversy, why it is used, and how it would be different with the
controversial content removed. Provide examples.

Find three mass media
messages on the issue from different sources, such as a news report,
advertisement, or press release. Discuss how each source presents a different
side of the issue and how media affects public opinion.

Discuss how new technology
affects news and advertising. How does new technology affect the public’s
perception of the controversy? Does the medium in which the message is
presented resolve or exacerbate the controversy?

 (with instructor approval):

Create two media pieces
showcasing the pros and cons of the same controversial issue.

Present different sides of the
controversial issue in each media piece to demonstrate how the media piece
affects public opinion.

Your media pieces may be in any of the following formats:
radio or television advertisement, news report, press release, newspaper or
magazine column, or a blog.

Include the following in your
media pieces:

  • Discuss the
    nature of the controversy.

  • How does it
    affect or benefit our society?

  • Why should
    we be concerned?

  • Provide a
    possible solution to the problem (if applicable).

You may use the following options to create your media

  • Script (3 to
    4 pages)

  • Slide
    presentation (10 to 12 slides)

  • Audio or
    video podcast (1 to 2 minutes)

  • Or another
    format approved by your instructor
