Examples of questions from the 2007 senior take-home final:
- Find a news story on video at http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/home/main100.shtml.
Why did CBS air that story in that form on that day? In your answer, consider the motives of news organizations, the constraints they face, and the efforts of outside individuals and groups to influence coverage.
- Prof. Joseph Bessette has defined deliberation as reasoning on the merits of public policy.
Have Internet news sites and blogs improved or diminished the quality of deliberation on national issues? (Make sure you consider the Sunstein reading, among others.)
