1. Conduct a contents analysis of a criminal justice story or issue (e.g., a trial, a crime, a series of crimes, a type of crime, a crisis within the police, prison or probation services, or an aspect of criminal justice policy) in two contrasting newspapers. The choice of newspaper and time period is your own. You may wish to choose two national daily newspapers, or two Sunday newspapers or one national paper and one local paper; you may wish to compare coverage from a single day or for a period of several days. Explain your choice of newspapers and the period of analysis. Critically examine the coverage. What does it communicate about criminal justice? Don’t forget to append the analysed articles to your assignment.
The assignment should not exceed 1500 words in length and you must include the word-count on the front page of the work. The assignment must be fully referenced using the Harvard referencing system.
