ENGL 219 WEEK 4 MIDTERM Midterm 1. Question : (TCO 9) An investigative reporter decides to set up a sting targeting men who frequent sexually explicit websites looking for underage correspondents. He invites the men to a rented home to meet with volunteers who pretend to be underage children. A camera crew waits at the house to record the encounters, which are eventually televised. Is it ethical to employ this type of tactic, even if the agenda is a worthy one? In a persuasive essay, you are to respond to this scenario by agreeing or disagreeing with it. Keep in mind the readings and work we have done in this course to date. * Do you agree or disagree with the actions taken in this scenario—why or why not? * What role do you feel newspapers play in society? Remember to have a clear introduction, several body paragraphs, and a conclusion. This should be written as a formal essay. Question 2. Question : (TCO 5) Pretend you are in the following situation. You work for a local university newspaper and set up a meeting with the student body president. You plan to ask him what his stand is on dedicating scholarship money to minorities. How should you prepare for the interview? Develop five specific questions pertaining to this topic and arrange them from least threatening to most threatening. Question 3.
