Minority representation in the news essay for English help?





So i have this assignment that is worth 15% of my English mark about the media. My subject was minority representation in the news. I took notes on some studies about that issue and my teacher gave me a 4/10 on my notes cause i didn't have enough notes from "primary sources" and that I'm supposed to use mainly primary sources for my essay and that they all had to be the same format. So i decided to look at several newspapers and look at articles about minorities and take notes and observations. Problem is i couldn't tell which articles were about minorities if there was no picture or identification. I couldn't find anything of significance really except for the fact that articles on minorities are mainly about crime, sports and entertainment and barely in politics in business other than Obama. So how am I supposed to write a 1000 word essay on that without over-using secondary sources? Am i not looking deep enough into the articles or something?

    You use your primary sources to back up your secondary sources.For example: You say that the media covers stories mainly about crime in latino or black communities (based offa secondary source). You back that up with an example from a primary source (a newspaper, interview, magazine,journal,) It doesn’t matter how long the primary source occurred it is still a primary source.
