The purpose of the paper is to compare views of two newspapers when reporting on the same event, personality, political party, social movement, legislation, etc.
Information detailing techniques regarding searches, will be provided by one of the librarians next week.
The newspapers available on line are: Historical New York Times, The Sun, The New York Herald Tribune (originally the Herald and the Tribune were separate newspapers), The New York World (originally The Evening World), or any paper you can find (does not have to be a New York paper). You may want to use the website “Chronicling America” which provides a useful tool for newspapers searches by state, region, city, etc.
First, you should select a topic relevant to the course; input the dates when in “Advanced Search “ on the website of the newspaper, and then select at least 15-20 articles from both papers that reflect best the views of the papers regarding the event you have selected. I would suggest you start with the Historical New York Times.
Organization of the paper: Avoid summarizing the articles. Think instead in terms of topics related to the subject. For example: Johnson-Reed Act of 1924. Relevant themes: generally speaking, views of the immigrants, characterization of the immigrants, any mention of radicalism of immigrants (Communists, Socialists, Anarchists), leading voices for restriction and those opposed, the views regarding immigrants’ ability to assimilate, their “hyphenism,” etc. At the end of the process, there will be a brief conclusion (of general character). Note: you do not have to come up with a thesis!
Your research may result in concluding that the two newspapers held very similar views, or, that their views differed in their reporting– either way, you should support these conclusions throughout your research. You should be also able to conclude as to the character of the readership of the papers, possibly, Northern and urban in the case of the “new immigrants” (possibly, expressing the views of the Democratic Party).
