It had always raised my curiosity why news stations where so bias to one political party as opposed to another. For the longest time I had shown little or no interest in politics in general, mainly due to the fact that I would be unable to affect it being that I was under the legal age to even vote. Since that time, now I can vote and it is important for me to know this information. So I thought what better than to search for and gain a better understanding of the political world. My new found interest in politics lead me to the idea about the bias of the news stations. This seemed like a perfect introduction into the political world since most everyone uses the news networks to bet their political information.
At the beginning of the project I was a little intimidated at the fact that I would have to speak for six minutes and forty seconds, however it turned out to be easier than I thought. In order to prepare for the project I wrote out a script so say along with the slides I was presenting as I started to time myself I realized that I needed only to say about two to three sentences per slide which is not too difficult to accomplish.
I chose my slides based on the information I was presenting. I chose key words or phrase in my speech to correspond with what my audience was hearing. Some of the pictures I had chosen used word play for example in slide ten. I stated that “segments run by opinionated hosts” and the picture I posted a picture of a running woman. In addition the sponge soaking water gave the audience a picture of water being soaked up by the sponge. This image was to go along with the words, “The media is run by the bias that permeates it.” So just like water permeates a sponge, bias permeates media.
The final slide was needed to create a summation of the entire presentation. Since the final slide was needed to represent the entire presentation, it was therefore the most important of all the slides. For this picture I choose a nice friendly picture of a group of presumably businessmen and woman all shaking hands. The businessmen are representative of the cable news networks. I chose this picture due to the fact that it resembles a friendly and trustworthy attitude.
