Hello, my name is Charles T.!
Welcome to my blog, where I am eager to detail the progress on my senior project. As an ardent newsreader who jumps at every chance to stay on top of current events, I’m glad to channel my passion into a research project.
My research project, Editorials, Diction, Syntax, and More: How the News Media Influences the Consumer’s Opinion, really spins my curiosity for the impact of digital news media, into an analysis of the current journalistic climate. I’m excited to analyze the numerous variables that shape the connotation of a news piece and the impact that is translated. Attached at the bottom of this blog is my senior project proposal. Take a look! It’ll give you a rundown of the inspiration and methodology for my project. Below are a few updates that I’m excited to report since the proposal.
- I am glad to announce that I am beginning my internship at Soliel on March 2nd. I can’t wait to get settled into the Soliel LLC workplace, as well as start my writing duties as an intern for the company. Working on market research, technical writing, and whitepaper development, I’m interested in seeing how my efforts writing will translate into successful government contracts for the company. As a result of the writing aspect, I foresee a considerable overlap between my internship and the research question I am seeking an answer to.
- “How do the ways in which journalists digitally transmit information to a newsreader influence the way we perceive it?” I have constructed this as the research question I am looking to answer for my project. Immediately, I came across gray areas. What field of journalism (i.e., political, scientific)? What aspect of journalism to focus on (i.e., headlines, editorials vs. non-editorials, etc.) However, I’m not worried about these obstacles. I will hone down my focus as my research project continues.
