Martin Harrison, 1985, TV News: Whose Bias, Part1, Ch. 4 Policy Journals, Hermitage, UK
This book is about a research on TV news coverage in Bad news. Although reporters always run and always hope to be the first to get certain news in the society but when they got the news, would the story still be the same when they report it? The news might become bias on one side or reporters may exaggerate the story so they can gain more audience to read or watch their news. This book has shown that what newspaper said may not reliable which proved in my research and group project that media may changed or bias on people on benefits system and homosexuality.

In this journal, the author talked about the difference between homosexuality and Transsexuals. She even describe the stereotype of homosexuality and discussed whether homosexuality is a kind of illness of not. I believed her journal is really helpful on my research project and she has the same goal as I want to prove in my research project, which is mutual respecting each other.

It has been described that the closet is the identity of space for homosexuals. It is a place for them to present themselves with authority. The author told us about the reasons and gave us a structure of the homosexuals’ closets. It helped me to understand more about the purpose of these closets. Also it helped me to support on my further research on why the homosexuals have walked in and out the closet.

In this journal, it talks about the policy of marriage on homosexuals. It explained the difficulties of making the homosexuals’ marriage to become legal. Also in their research they have discovered that there are more concern on why people become homosexuals instead of supporting them on the legal recognition of the same sex marriage. It helped to me to understand more about the pressure that the homosexuals are having and it has given built up a bigger content for my research.
Tim Groseclose and Jeffrey Milyo, A Measure of Media Bias, The Quarterly Journal of Economics, Vol. 120, No. 4, pp. 1191-1273, Oxford University Press
From this journal, they have done a research on which newspapers have been bias on politics. And the result has shown that most newspaper have been exaggerate and changed their choice of words. Since these newspapers have loads of reader, they have affected the readers’ thoughts and decisions. Again this proved that the media might have changed readers’ point of view without notice. They are controlling readers’ thought!
Matthew Gentzkow anf jesse M. Shapiro, 2006, Media Bias and Reputation, Journal of Political Economy, Vol. 114, No. 2, pp.280-316, The University of Chicago Press
In their research they noticed that the media has phrased differently in their newspapers with their choice of words. It is different from the primary source but from the readers point of view we will never know about the truth. Readers normally tend to believe what the media said, when the media became bias, is this fair to the people who have been mentioned in the news? I believed media should be objective and honest. They shouldn’t be stereotyping anyone in their news.
