We began this project with a visual/verbal analysis of three news sources: Google News, NBC, and NPR. We collected our findings over a few weeks, first individually and then as a team. Then, we worked to create a mental model of how news media works, describing our findings and posing questions to our class. This whet our appetites for news media and information, but our findings in this stage of the project only obliquely informed our project in later phases.
