The Ways the Media Portrayed the Event

One way the media portrayed the event was that she was murdered by an unknown person, possibly the Kennedys. Another way that her death was portrayed was that she accidentally overdosed on barbiturates. The last way her death was portrayed was suicide, which means she would have had to take 60-85 barbiturate pills to have that much in her body. The official autopsy report says that it could have been a "possible suicide."

Bias Found About the Event

The main bias that I found about the event was selection of sources. I feel that the bias is selection of sources because it depends on what video or document you look at gives you the idea of how she died. For example, one video says that she committed suicide and another video says that she was murdered.

Criticism

The criticism that I found about the event would be historical. I choose historical because the event happened in history and the people are reflecting back. Also, people are making their own opinions based off of the facts placed in history.
