it is my midterm paper so I wanted to be good. and I know it will be as long as everything in the question is covered (which I didn't do in my paper!) and 3 of those articles are used as references. 700-1000. Believe my paper is around 984 words
Omg, I just realized I didn't even submit my paper! Which can help you or may not? I'm going to do it right now
I need someone to answer this question and fix my current paper about it as my answer shifted and it's not as close to the question as it should be! I need you to focus specifically on the government and media and also old media vs new media (just like it says in the question) I also need you to use the articles I'm going to post with it as your references (three of them at least). It is up to you if you want to change my current paper completely or just a little bit. You're welcome to delete some stuff off it as well. The deadline is short but you already have a paper that can be only changed. I will tip you $20 if you do it properly!
We have examined the role of technology in how the media is organized as a business and how information is presented to the public. As media content evolved from local printing presses to national newspapers, to radio and television, and finally to the Internet, media businesses (for the most part) created certain rules and codes of conduct that attempted to balance profit-seeking with fulfilling the public interest (reporting on government, powerful interests, etc). With the rise of social media and the migration of most advertising money to the Internet, many of these “old media” business models are failing. It remains unclear even today what ‘new media’ model will evolve and how it can protect or harm the public interest.
Comparing what we’ve learned about Old Media and what we have learned about New Media, do you think one is better than the other as a gatekeeper of information necessary for the public interest? Think about where Old Media succeeded in exposing government misdeeds and think about where it failed to do so (or where it actively mislead the public.) Think about how New Media has done both as well. Think about how they interact and if they are a form of checks and balance on each other.
