A Comparison of Two Newspaper Articles

In this coursework 'B' I would be comparing two news articles from two
different sources. This coursework will be divided into three parts.
The background and context, the view of both articles i.e. use of
languages, headlines, quotes used e.t.c the last part will be my
opinion and the conclusion.

The main idea is to compare two news articles about a prison called
Guantanomo bay in Cubaand how the prisoners are being treated, if the
prisoners require a fair trial, if torture is going on and so on.
These two articles are gotten from the internet the websites are
www.dailymail.co.uk and www.bbc.co.uk. These two sources have
different ways of reporting news. The daily mail can be classified as
a tabloid which is a kind of news which is based on giving
entertainment and drawing the attention of the public. The other which
is BBC can be classified as a broadsheet style which has the aim of
giving factual and objective news to the public.

This coursework is really going to be an interesting one because it
helps us to see how two different sources talk about the same thing.
It would entail how the present, which one of both (headlines) draw
the attention to the public. I look forward to completing it because
it is an activity which seems interesting and shouldn't be bye-passed.

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT.

On September 11 2001, two aeroplanes which were hijacked by terrorist
crashed into the two tallest buildings in the USpopularly known as the
twin towers. Some suspects from al qaeda where arrested on charges on
terrorism and where put in Guantanamo bay, Cuba. The president in
charge of this case is president George.w.Bush and he blames Al qaeda
for the attacks.

The al qaeda is an organisation headed by Osama Bin Laden. The
prisoners in guantanomo bay are about 450 from at least 43 different
countries. The main reason behind the arrest is to find out if any one
or groups of the suspected prisoners had anything to do with the
September 11 attack. The Guantanamo bay is outside the US and it has a
major difference between all the prisons in US. The difference is that
the prison doesn't obey the UN declaration of human rights which is:
right for free trial before being sentenced to prison, the right for
everyone to be allowed any form of defence.g lawyers during the trial.

This two newspaper articles were derived from their websites
dailymail.co.uk and bbc.co.uk are giving information on if the
prisoners are being tortured. According to the BBC article prisoners
do not have any contact with their families, they where just arrested
without trial and they are facing interrogations with torture. On the
other hand the article from the dailymail says that president bush
denies having anything to do with the torture of the prisoners as he
