Paper details

My Classmate uses your service for the same course, same topic couple of days ago. I appreciate you make sure this essay is not similar to hers. Find at least two (2) sources on the story/event. Sources include TV news, radio, internet new sites, newspaper, social media, etc. and if its local, national, or international, specifying country of origin. Include the sources in the paper’s bibliography, along with the textbook and modules cited within the body of your paper – required. You can focus on a single media source or use multiple media sources in order to compare and contrast; does the medium of the story make a difference on how sickness and health are portrayed? Address the following sub-questions as appropriate to the sources and topic. Also feel free to include other questions/issues that have come up within the class: – Are all the sources from the same cultural perspective? If not, what similarities and/or differences are there? – Are the sources from the same cultural context as the issue they are reporting on? Does this make a difference? Explain – Is there a pattern of how the stories are reported? – How is illness/health/healing framed? What is the perspective? What is the bias? – How does the media’s framing impact the interpretation of medicine/illness/healing? – What and who’s narratives/view points of illness or health are featured? – Are particular causes or remedies discussed? If so, what is the perspective? Are they culturally specific? Required is a minimum of five (4) references, including the textbook. All sources should be referenced, including any websites, newspapers, TV features, etc.
