In 1915, leaders of the Turkish government set in motion a plan to expel and massacre Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire.
New York Times
In the New York Times article October 7,1915, Viscount Bryce, former British ambassador to the United States, stated that the whole nation had been wiped out, did not suppose there was any case in history of a crime. Viscount said "this crime is so hideous and on such a large scale."
Bias by placement - the crime is so hideous and on such a large scale. Viscount mentions
Bias by omission - its just talking about what happened to the Armenians & it keeps referring one sided
Marxist Criticism- the title and the statement about "the whole nation had been wiped out" It talks about how what the Turks did were wrong and they are wrong to keep denying.
John Oliver - Armenian Genocide
John Oliver talks about the Armenian genocide. It's still a controversial topic. The pope and George Clooney consider it a genocide. Kim Kardashian visiting Armenia to recognize the genocide has made more people aware of what happened in 1915. President Obama called it a genocide in 2007 but every year after that just writes a statement saying he recognizes the incident of April 24,1915 and his thoughts haven't changed. Obama won't call it a genocide because the Turkish government and Obama are on good terms and he doesn't want to mess anything up.
Bias by placement- The title and the pictures it has presented during his little speech talking about the genocide. The pictures placing the video of the memorial for the Armenian genocide.
Marxist Criticism- John talks about the Armenian Genocide and refers to how it gets recognized by the Kardashian's and how Obama is a hypocrite to himself. John goes in depth of how if celebrities think of something, other people back them up and believe the same thing.
Remembering The Armenian Genocide
Bias by story selection - it has different short stories. The short stories range from how they hoped for better days and about the Armenians that actually survived.
Bias by placement - the headlines all have titles that draw out the story. The headlines go from most important which in this case was "I wish I could speak for her" which sounds very sad.
Marxist Criticism - It talks about the sadness that came from the genocide and it also talks about the different relatives of the writers and the different thoughts they had.
Historical Criticism - The tragic event that turned heads and how some people thought thought for better days. The different perspectives of the different individuals and what they thought about the incident.
