Type 1: Analyze the following quote.

“We cannot resign ourselves to the false belief that the Arab Spring (the overhaul of democracy in the Middle East) is doomed to be defined not by the desire for democracy and freedom that has inspired millions of people to peaceful action, but by the dark fanaticism (extreme ideas) of terrorists”

-Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham in a joint statement.

We then continued on to discuss and compare the different opinions on what is occurring in Libya and deciphering if there was bias in any of the stories. We made charts using the 5 W’s (Who, what, when where and why) as well as bias to discuss.
