Four (4) times during this semester, you will submit a 150-200-word summary [not a copy] of anews story from any reputable state or national news source in print, on radio, on TV, oronline. Use Times New Roman, 12-pt. type, double-spaced. The story will be about theintersection of media and the First Amendment in the United States—no stories from foreigncountries. Not part of the 150-200 words will be a description of where you found this newsitem (N.Y. Times, CNN on TV, etc.), the title of the story, the date, and URL, if applicable,although I need to have this info. Just don’t count these words toward you 150-200 range. Thestory must appear in the news media during the week you will be submitting it. In addition tothe summary of the story, I’m looking for any insights you might have on why this is animportant case or issue and any implications for journalists, organizations, the media ingeneral, corporations, etc. Be sure to include your contact info at upper left: name, date,which week’s summary, email address. Remember: If your story has nothing to do with theFirst Amendment or nothing to do with the media, it will count as a zero. The story must includeBOTH. You will have no more chance to submit a summary that week.
If you write about an actual case in court, INCLUDE THE NAME OF THE CASE!!
