Newspaper Editorial Bias


Write a thoughtful and well-documented essay that answers the following questions:

The Whitehall Evening Post and the World newspapers covered all three of the Mendoza-Humphries matches, and their reports are in Part II of ths book.  Discuss if the two newspapers have an editorial bias – in other words, did they favor one contestant over the other?  If so, which paper was more favorable to Mendoza and which to Humphries? Apart from the course of the matches, what else did the newspapers tend to notice? Did the newspapers change their opinion of one or both of the boxers over time?Does one newspaper seem more reliable to you than the other as a historical source, why or why not?

Papers should be approximately four pages or 1000-1200 words.  Base your formal essay upon Mendoza the Jew: Boxing, Manliness, and Nationalism by Ronald Schecter and Liz Clarke; there is no need to do additional research.  Use a basic font such as arial or times new roman, in 11 or 12 point size, and double spaced lines.  Grading will be determined by both essay content and quality of writing.  This essay requires the use of footnotes and should use the Chicago Manual of Style citation format.

This essay will count as twenty percent of your final grade. Late essays will be penalized one full letter grade for everyday that they are overdue.

Thesis: Any paper should include a clear position statement. The thesis statement is an excellent place to start, because it gives the essay boundaries and an overall theme.  It should be placed in the introductory paragraphs.

Organization: A paper must demonstrate a definite pattern of argument, which is supported by the evidence. Often an essay map, or a statement in the introductory paragraph detailing the general arguments of the papers, will help keep the author and reader on track. Writing an outline is also recommended, in order to have a clear vision of your papers objectives in each section.

Content: Essays should demonstrate an understanding of the course material germane to the question being addressed.  This is the major part of the paper and where supporting evidence should be presented and adamantly defended. The best defenses use specific examples from the text.

Grammar: Papers should not contain repeated spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors.  These mishaps can be best avoided by proofreading and peer reviews.


Title: Newspaper Editorial Bias
Length: 4 pages (1100 Words)
Style: Turabian


The essay seeks to analyze two different newspapers that covered the three Mendoza-Humphries matches. The editorial coverage of the time was marred by a lot of biases based on minority segregations, where one contestant was being favored over the other in a period. The essay unravels the extent of such occurrences in the two newspaper cases, in order to ascertain the extent of the vice in the ancient Britain, which forms my thesis statement. The analysis begins by outlining Mendoza as a poor Sephardic Jew from East London. He took boxing as a career that helped him earn a living. He dominated during the Georgian period of the late 17th and early 18th century.
