- Compare and contrast the stories on the home pages of the following websites on the 16th of November: The Drudge Report, the Huffington Post, Breitbart News, the New York Times and the Washington Post. Examine the first full screen of content beneath the masthead as well as anything that may appear above the masthead (this applies to the Drudge Report and the Huffington Post which tend to have content above and below their publication names).
- How are the top stories on the sites similar and dissimilar? Be specific. Cite top stories, headlines, images, videos. Was there an overall tone to the home pages, what kind of tone and how was it conveyed?
- Are there any topics they have in common? If they do have topics in common, how does the coverage compare? Did they all cover the topics similarly, if so, show me how they were similar. If they covered the topics differently, show me how the topics were covered differently. (Use things like headlines, language, images, tone, etc. to demonstrate their differences.) Would the topic/event have seemed totally different if a consumer only read one of these news site's coverage?
- Additionally, give a general overview of the kind of content you found on the home pages (like political news, entertainment news, international, business, etc.).
