TC101 – Spring 2013

First read the Moral Panic article in the Writing Assignment 2 folder. Then, find a news article that discusses a moral panic or outrage over a new piece of technology or technological subculture (i.e. World of Warcraft, Second Life, Apple). The article must be published AFTER Jan. 1, 2011 and be from a reputable news source (e.g., New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, FOX, Lansing State Journal, Washington Post, Time Magazine, etc.)


Print out the first page of the news article and attach it with your written assignment.


Use APA style to cite 1) the news article, and 2) the research study.


Then discuss the following…

  1. Background or history of the technology and moral panic.
  2. Did the news article accurately present the technology and its possible effects? Did any part of the news article appear to be biased? Why?
  3. Is there any information missing from the news article that you think should have been included (e.g., opposing research)?
  4. Is the moral panic valid? What supports the moral panic? What argues against it?
