Watch the local and national news broadcasts for one evening and make a list of the stories carried in the broadcast. You can ignore the sports and weather. Do the same for one edition of a local paper. When your list is complete, answer the following: How many stories are apparently intended to appeal to our emotions and our sympathies? Which stories seem to have been intended to grab our attention by appealing to our curiosity or love of scandal? Which seems to have been selected for their entertainment value? How many stories seem intended to make us fearful for our safety or grateful for our security?
