In the Carolyn Jack article, “Lexicon of Lies”,
(Links to an external site.)
the author argues that propaganda does not always tell citizens what to think, but can instead focus on spreading confusion, distrust, and uncertainty about information presented by the media.
Jack details several different types of disinformation, which include:
In your paper, you are to select one of the above types of disinformation, and briefly summarize what it means, and how it functions in the media, according to the Jack article.
Second, choose any example of media today and explain how it can be seen exhibiting the type of misinformation you selected You can use social media posts, cable news programming, local news, entertainment media, sports coverage, etc. When selecting an example, be absolutely sure it fits with the term you’ve selected. For this part of the assignment, you are encouraged to draw on your own experience of media consumption, or the experience of people you know. You are not expected to do any additional research, but you are expected to provide details about the media example you’ve selected.
The paper must be a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 600 words. This assignment is worth 15% of your final grade. Papers shorter or longer than the length requirement will get bad grades. Late papers will be penalized 10% per day, including weekends.
You should cite Jack using page numbers in parentheses. E.g., “Campaigns to distract or confuse the public often involve multiple sources…” (9). You may quote her briefly as I just did (a few words maximum) where appropriate, but you should not rely too much on quotation and should try to put important ideas in your own words. Papers with long quotations will get bad grades. If you use any other sources, you must cite them properly. Papers containing plagiarism will be given an F and the appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken with your dean.
Your paper must be written in well-crafted sentences and paragraphs. You must spell correctly and use standard grammar, syntax, and word usage. Your paper should be organized logically as a series of points, all of which are supported by evidence. These points should cohere around a single central idea: your thesis, or argument. Your paper should have a title, something more descriptive than “Intro to Mass Media Paper.” Badly written papers will get bad grades even if the ideas contained in them are good.
Before submitting your paper please be sure you can answer yes to the following questions:
Does my paper summarize Jack’s main points about disinformation?
Does my paper support this summary with examples from the reading?
