Extracts from this document...


FUNMI EBOREIME 11CJM CITIZENSHIP COURSEWORK 'B' MISS KING INTRODUCTION In this coursework 'B' I would be comparing two news articles from two different sources. This coursework will be divided into three parts. The background and context, the view of both articles i.e. use of languages, headlines, quotes used e.t.c the last part will be my opinion and the conclusion. The main idea is to compare two news articles about a prison called Guantanomo bay in Cuba and how the prisoners are being treated, if the prisoners require a fair trial, if torture is going on and so on. These two articles are gotten from the internet the websites are www.dailymail.co.uk and www.bbc.co.uk. These two sources have different ways of reporting news. The daily mail can be classified as a tabloid which is a kind of news which is based on giving entertainment and drawing the attention of the public. The other which is BBC can be classified as a broadsheet style which has the aim of giving factual and objective news to the public. ...read more.


This two newspaper articles were derived from their websites dailymail.co.uk and bbc.co.uk are giving information on if the prisoners are being tortured. According to the BBC article prisoners do not have any contact with their families, they where just arrested without trial and they are facing interrogations with torture. On the other hand the article from the dailymail says that president bush denies having anything to do with the torture of the prisoners as he claims he didn't other anything of that order. But further in the article some secret white house documents showed us politician Donald rumsfeld in dec.2002 approved harsh interrogation techniques for Taliban and al qaeda prisoners at the us naval base in Guantanamo. VIEW OF BOTH ARTICLES. (COMPARISM) In the daily mail the topic is about Bush denying ordering prisoner torture. The article in trying to inform the public that president bush does not have anything to do with the prisoner torture. ...read more.


The Daily mail article was more interesting to me because I enjoyed the way the ideas where contrasted. The heading was more attractive. But I was more persuaded by the BBC news article because it was based on actual facts from someone/ prisoner who was actually going through torture. I believe torture was taken in the prison because in the Daily Mail article it said that even though Bush denied, Donald Rumself a US Politian secretly approved harsh interrogation methods such as removal of clothing, poking of chest, sexual humiliation suggest torture in the prison. A typical example is that from the BBC article saying that Mozzam Begg in his letter wrote that all information and papers of confession had been done under torture and threats of death. Finally, as a solution and in conclusion I think that no matter how this prisoners are the original partakers in the crime on September 11, they should be given a fair trial and should be given a fair trial and they should be allowed to here their lawyer, as a form of defence to back them up. ...read more.
