Analyzing the News
News reporting is done by journalists, who are charged with the important responsibility of curating information in ways that are fair and honest.
This week you will assume the role of a news editor or executive. Using the knowledge gained from this weekâ€™s readings and lectures, write a mock job posting for a journalist. Your job posting should include:
A description of what the journalist will do (feel free to be creative, given that there are many different kinds of journalists)
A list of qualities necessary for being a good journalist
A list of expectations that the journalist will fulfill. Make sure to include required skills that address reliability and validity in reporting.
Make your mock job posting look as realistic as possible. If you are unsure about how to write a job posting, look for examples online.
