As we read about media conglomeration and concentration and how it has affected news, I would like to use the alternative media assignment for us to explore media that are NOT mainstream, owned by large conglomerates, and have more independent or progressive voices or with news angles/reports that we don’t normally see. Then, New York Times, or Reuters, or CNN will not be considered as Alternative News.  The list I gave you include examples of alternative media. And each source provides a lot of links you can explore, and include in your own list (I request 3).
See below.  Let me know any questions you have.  Please see below instructions-
