For my comparison essay, I have chosen to look more in-depth at Rageh Ommar and Ernie Pyle. Both of these journalists/correspondents reported on war. some of the key things I will be comparing and contrasting are:
- Their work
- Political Views
- House styles and Technology’s
I believe that both Plye and Ommar will be really interesting to analyse as they both have served a long and successful career. Working in a different era will help to showcase comparisons in how they did their reporting and job. Even though they have a lot of difference they also shared similar traits as well. These two war correspondents worked years apart, but the way in which news is reported has changed.
I will use key quotes to back up what I am saying. There are many things I can do in order to gain knowledge on the reporters. For instance using the library facilities, use books, the internet and any other sources if needed.
The essay will be 2000 words in total and will contribute 30% towards my overall marks for CATS. 10 %, either way, will still be appropriate for the work count.
