paper summary of –(Examining the Production of Contemporary Historiography) – The goal

of this paper is to allow you to analyze how “historiography” is an ongoing process largely

influenced by the news media. History is a subjectively generated product. History incorporates

the biases and viewpoints of those who produce it. The news media today is a key source in

providing us with “meaning” connected to newsworthy “historical” events. In fact, the news

media is in fact a major part of the process that generates “history.” Although news media

reporters and editors frequently claim that they are presenting “just the facts,” the way in which

these “facts” are presented often carry a number of biases that strongly influence public

perception and interpretations of current events.
