For this assignment you will write two complete annotations for the following interpretive journalism articles. They should include the following:
Summary: Give a one- to two-sentence summary of what the source reports or argues.
Provenance: Discuss the provenance of the source including who wrote it and what credentials or qualifications they have as well as who published it and what credentials they have. NOTE: You are NOT ALLOWED to identify the political or ideological leanings of the publisher.
Bias: For fact-based and interpretive journalism sources, identify the bias you detect in the article (or its absence), with examples, and discuss whether that bias falls within acceptable limits, in your opinion. NOTE: You are NOT ALLOWED to use the political or ideological leanings of the publisher as evidence of bias.
Reasoning: For interpretive and opinion-based journalism sources, discuss the fairness and quality of the argument: are claims backed up with credible evidence, are their logical fallacies or other mistakes, does the writer use any dirty tricks or unrealistic shortcuts?
Here are the articles you're assigned to write about:
