    If you are supposed to write about techniques used by different media, don’t get off topic by discussing Barack Obama’s politics, but write about how his politics are portrayed in the media. You might want to listen to commentators such as Rush Limbaugh and watch the news on CNN and Fox News to show how the techniques of such commentators try to shape public opinion of President Obama’s policies.One technique is slanting. This is where you tell the truth, but present only evidence that supports your view. Example: In a horse race between the Kentucky Derby winner and a 12 year old mare, you could report that the mare came in second while the Thoroughbred came in next to last. It’s true but misleading.Another technique is the band wagon appeal. Everybody agrees that .. . And there’s the emperor’s new clothes: Anybody but an idiot can see that . . . Of course there’s stereotyping: All Republicans are . . . Of course the only thing that is true about all Republicans is, they’re all Republicans.If you decide to write about the oil spill or Lindsay Lohan, concentrate on the media’s presentation of the material, not on what you think about the oil spill or Lindsay Lohan.I hope I’ve helped. Good luck

    There is a lot of controversy over Barack Obama’s US birth certificate, or lack thereof. It is important because if, in fact, he was not born in the US he is not eligible to be the President. As you might imagine, many people who don’t believe he was born in the US are trying to use this issue to have him removed from office.The issue has gone all the way to the Supreme Court.

    who cares if everyone is doing the same thing? just do it…if anything your teacher will be so bored reading all the same thing he/she will probably be too lazy to read em all in depth and just give you a good grade. But if you wanna do a celebrity you could try…uuuuhlindsey lohan….she looks horrible in the media lol
