media source.

week 3 you need to find information from a Government or Non-Government Organisation
which is related to the theory of Discourse and Power.
Your Media Journal entry should include a link, screenshot or other evidence of the Media
Source, as well as the analysis. All sources should be referenced and may include:
 An official website from a professional organisation (e.g. a government agency, the
United Nations, or any official scholarly site)
 A blog (internet-based)
 A relevant social networking site. (This should not be, for example, Facebook
generally, but a Facebook page or group. You may move beyond Facebook to
Linkedin, FourSquare, Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest or any other social networking tool,
but please be discerning).
 A film or television show
 A relevant film from YouTube
 An online or offline newspaper or magazine article
Note: Each of these types of resources needs to be referenced correctly.
Evaluative Criteria:
• Careful selection of media source
