1. Watch the entire network news casts on ABC, CBS and NBC on the same day. Each of the three major broadcast networks post their full evening broadcasts online. You may go to each website below and click on the "full episode" tab to watch the broadcasts. Be sure you watch the episodes which were aired on the same date.

If you run into trouble, go to YouTube and search for "ABC World News Tonight." Be sure to find the full episode which should be anywhere from 19-22 minutes in length.)

2. What your analysis needs to include:
- Make a list of the topics (politics, international, crime, feature story, etc.) and the order of the topics on the broadcast. Assess the tone of each topic, the language and images used. Did they all cover the similar topics in a similar order or were they different? Use specific examples (such as describing a news segment, the language used by the anchorperson or the reporter, what kinds of images/videos were used, look at the wording of the headlines on the bottom of the screen).
- If the networks covered the same topics, compare and contrast the coverage. If their coverage was similar, show me how they were similar (tone, same quotes, same language, same images, etc.) by citing specific examples. If they took different angles and perspectives on the topic, show me how they were different by describing the differences and offering concrete examples from the broadcasts.
- Would the same topic leave viewers with different perspectives depending on which network they watched? Why or why not?
