  1. Political Bias – Creating a Newspaper Layout By now you should recognize that most news is delivered with a bias of some sort. Your task today is to create the front page of two newspapers, one with a conservative bias, the other with a liberal bias. You will find scissors & glue in the boxes in the back of the classroom. Cut out each of the following headlines, cartoons and images. Study the headlines, cartoons and images. Determine which has a more liberal slant (either positive for the liberals or makes conservatives look less good) and which has a more conservative slant (positive for conservatives or makes liberals look/sound less good). Open your notebook so you have an empty left and right side of the notebook empty. At the top of the left page, write “Liberal Bias,” and on the top of the right page, write “Conservative Bias.” Layout the headlines, images and cartoons on the appropriate sides, liberal or conservative. Remember, language and layout are powerful things. Think about which side would do what to sway public opinion in its favor – oh, and FYI, the top half of the front page is called “above the fold” and newspapers usually put what they see as most important there… Use the glue stick to affix your headlines, images and cartoons. You need to use all of the headlines and images provided. If you do not finish in class, please finish whatever you have left so we can share tomorrow.
