JOUA02: FINAL EXAM (TAKE HOME)
INTRO TO JOURNALISM AND NEWS LITERACY II
Value: 30%
Due: April 21st, 2021
Time: 8am EST
Objectives:
•
•
•
Reinforce your comprehension of course themes and content
Illustrate your ability to synthesize course material from different modules and apply it to
answer a specific question
Foster your critical thinking about course concepts, practical applications, and
connections between ideas
Instructions:
• Choose from ONE of two essay questions
• Write a 3-4 page paper (1000 words).
Time Requirements:
The expectations of a take-home essay exam are somewhere in between an in-class essay
exam and papers (like your final essay). Content expectations are higher than in-class exams
because you have more time and you can utilize course texts and notes. You also have more
time to prepare an argument, structure your paper, and pay attention to grammar.
However, expectations are a little bit lower than course papers. First of all, you are not required
to conduct secondary research. You are only to utilize course materials in your essay (readings
+ lectures). Second, it is expected that you spend less time on this take-home essay than you
did the paper.
This exam was designed to be completed in 6 hours, but I am providing the class several
days to work on this exam (7 days to be exact).
Your essay must include:
• A clear introduction that states how you are going to tackle the question and outlines your
essay.
• For each topic you are to apply at least 3 course concepts in your essay and reference
course lectures.
• At least 3 references to course readings (2 peer reviewed articles or scholarly books/chapters
AND 1 news style article)
Format:
• File type: pdf, doc, and docx are the only acceptable file types
• Proper APA citation throughout and a works cited page
• A title page with a title for your essay, your name, student number, and the course code
• 12 point font, Times New Roman, Double spaced
• Citations to class lectures when the material you are discussing is drawn from lectures
Questions:
Consider everything we have learned this term and synthesize course material in your essay
response.
Choose ONE of the following essay questions to answer:
1. The well documented insufficiency of the traditional advertising business model as a way to
sustain journalism has led some to argue that the wall between business and editorial
should be breached, allowing room for news organizations to produce branded content and
native advertising. CBC/Radio-Canada has launched a new division dedicated to this called
Tandem. Canadian journalist David Skok, founder of The Logic, puts it this way: “Without
sales, marketing, strategy, leadership and, first and foremost, revenues, there is no editorial
independence left to root for.” Synthesizing what you have learned this term, is this the only
way forward for journalism (or are there other options)? What are the implications if the wall
between business and editorial comes down?
2. Historically, companies like Facebook and Google have resisted being identified as media
companies because they wanted to distance themselves from any notions of editorial
control. In 2017 Facebook COO Cheryl Sandberg said “at our heart we’re a tech company;
we hire engineers. We don’t hire reporters, no one’s a journalist, we don’t cover the news.”
Over the last several year as mis/disinformation and online hate have proliferated on social
networking sites, there have been calls for federal governments to regulate social media
companies to compel them to exert editorial control and remove such content from their
platforms. YouTube has begun changing its policies to address hate speech and mis/
disinformation. Should social networking sites be censoring content on their platforms?
Should federal governments have oversight? What are the implications/consequences of
doing so?
