Google Cloud platform; Effects of news and media on American culture

Imagine you are a fair-minded news editor. You have been asked to respond to an online discussion thread regarding how news and information media have affected American culture. Note: the plural of journalist is journalists.

 

Answer the following questions in 100 to 150 words each bullet point (you may make this a Q&A presentation, but it still requires APA formatting and cover page):

 

· Does a journalist have an obligation to present opposing sides of any controversial subject on which he or she may be reporting, or may certain facts be left out to promote an agenda that the journalist may consider to be for the greater good? Please justify your answer.

 

· What is the proper role of the information and news media in the shaping of political opinions? What ethics should be applied by media in political reporting?

 

· How have electronic media and their convergence transformed journalism and news consumption?

 

· What role does satire have in the news today? How have programs and websites such as The Daily Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and The Onion provided a separate space for commentary on the news and news providers? Do they contribute to political understanding or can they be misleading because of political bias?

 

· Fake news generally means political reporting in mainstream media (not social media) that usually doesn’t name sources or names sources that are lying and proves to be untrue or fraudulent (it is not reporting on opinions one may or may not disagree with). Provide at least two actual examples from mainstream media (not blogs or social media) during the past two or three years. We are not asking for your opinion about the claims made in a fake news story. Is fake news a legitimate journalistic tool? Why or why not?

 

· Illustrate your responses with specific examples

ethical and policy issues that affect the coordination of care.

Select a community organization or group that you feel would be interested in learning about ethical and policy issues that affect the coordination of care. Then, develop and record a 10-12-slide, 20-minute presentation, with audio, intended for that audience. Create a detailed narrative script for your presentation, 4-5 pages in length.

As coordinators of care, nurses must be aware of the code of ethics for nurses and health policy issues that affect the coordination of care within the context of the community. To help patients navigate the continuum of care, nurses must be proficient at interpreting and applying the code of ethics for nurses and health policy, specifically, the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Being knowledgeable about ethical and policy issues helps ensure that care coordinators are upholding ethical standards and navigating policy issues that affect patient care.

This assessment provides an opportunity for you to develop a presentation for a local community organization of your choice, which provides an overview of ethical standards and relevant policy issues that affect the coordination of care. Completing this assessment will strengthen your understanding of ethical issues and policies related to the coordination and continuum of care, and will empower you to be a stronger advocate and nursing professional.

Demonstration of Proficiency

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:

Competency 4: Defend decisions based on the code of ethics for nursing.

Assess the impact of the code of ethics for nurses on the coordination and continuum of care.

Competency 5: Explain how health care policies affect patient-centered care.

Explain how governmental policies related to the health and/or safety of a community affect the coordination of care.

Identify national, state, and local policy provisions that raise ethical questions or dilemmas for care coordination.

Competency 6: Apply professional, scholarly communication strategies to lead patient-centered care.

Communicate key ethical and policy issues affecting the coordination and continuum of care for a selected community organization or group.

Preparation

Your nurse manager at the community care center is well connected and frequently speaks to a variety of community organizations and groups. She has noticed the good work you are doing in your new care coordination role and respects your speaking and presentation skills. Consequently, she thought that an opportunity to speak publicly about contemporary issues in care coordination would be beneficial for your career and has suggested reaching out to a community organization or support group to gauge their interest in hearing from you, as a care center representative, on a topic of interest to both you and your prospective audience.

You have agreed that this is a good idea and have decided to research a community organization or support group that might be interested in learning about ethical and policy issues related to the coordination of care. Your manager has suggested the following community organizations and support groups, but acknowledges that the choice is yours.

Homeless shelters.

Local religious groups.

Nursing homes.

Local community organizations (Rotary Club or Kiwanis Club).

Discussion: Group Dynamics–Intragroup, Dominant Group, and Marginalization

 

Members of dominant ethnic and racial groups may assume that other groups’ struggles are not their own or assume that those of a given race speak with one voice and react in the same way to their oppression. In reality, people can cope with racial inequalities in a variety of ways, creating complex relationships both between the dominant and oppressed group and among members of the dominant and oppressed groups.

 

As a social worker, you must understand the many ways in which racial privilege can impact your clients. You must also understand the ways in which racial privilege has impacted your life and the ways you react to the realities of racism. You will likely need to help clients address racial divides and combat racial inequality to empower them.

 

To prepare: Review “Working With Immigrants and Refugees: The Case of Aaron.”

 

By Day 3

 

Post an explanation of how dominant groups can play a role in marginalizing other groups based on racial and ethnic characteristics. Discuss the potential negative impact of a dominant culture on immigrants and refugees, such as Aaron. How might racism and prejudice impact his assimilation? Furthermore, explain how you would respond to Aaron when he discusses his family’s rejection of his desire to maintain his cultural roots. In your explanation, identify specific skills you would employ as a multiculturally sensitive social worker.
