Critically analyse CNN Station
FORMAT: As with all assignments for this class, submit your assignment to TASK 5 CANVAS FOLDER. Please make sure your name is at the top of every page of your paper. Double-space your paper and use 1 inch margins all around (it makes it easier to read).
The purpose of this assignment is for you (a member of the public) to review a station’s performance to determine whether it is living up to its licensing requirement TO SERVE THE PUBLIC’s INTEREST, CONVENIENCE or NECESSITY (PICON).
PICON was introduced as a licensing requirement from the beginning (Communications Act 1934). It was mentioned over 100 times so it wasn’t just some off-the-cuff, empty promise made to the public. So let’s do a little research to find out if your station is fulfilling its PICON promise.
Choose a television station or a radio station (NOT BOTH) to be the subject of your station review. Here is a list of BAY AREA STATIONS (链接到外部网站。)链接到外部网站。, but you do NOT have to choose one of these. You can choose ANY station ANYWHERE in ANY state or country. The assignment (except for the programming part) will be exactly the same regardless of whether you choose a radio station or a television station.
