Adewunmi, Bim. "Despite everything, television still has an extraordinary amount of power."
New Statesman 14 June 2013: n. pag. Web. 10 July 2014.
<http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/2013/06/despite-everything-television-still-hasextraordinary-amount-power>. The New Statesman is a news magazine that's been
around for over 100 years. The author of this article has written nearly 40 articles for the
TV and News section of the magazine, many of which are opinionated pieces. The
purpose of the article was to inform about the disturbance caused by an ad featuring an
interracial family, and explain why she believed the disturbance to have occurred. It was
informative yet sprinkled with bias towards the interracial couple. This article helped me
because it gave me more insight into the way the media portrays real life, and how it
affects society.

variety of topics. Aimee Mullins was invited to discuss her experience having prosthetic
legs, which I believe qualifies her to talk about it. She's an athlete, actress, model, and an
activist for women's rights and sports. Her purpose was to offer a personal perspective on
disability and how it's portrayed in the media, including the relationship between
disability and perceived beauty. This was very helpful to me because it gave me a
personal perspective and a new angle to my study of beauty and the media.

Pages, 1998. Web. 3 Mar. 2015. <http://www.marilynmonroepages.com/facts/>. The
creator of this site doesn't, as far as I can tell, have any expert qualification on Marilyn
Monroe. He seems to just be a big fan of hers and his profession has nothing to do with
the website. The purpose of the site's creation seems to be to provide information about
Marilyn Monroe. I can't say how accurate it is. However, I only came to the website
looking for some very basic facts that anyone with knowledge on Marilyn Monroe would
probably know. Therefore, I feel that although it's not a very trustworthy source, it's
adequate for my use.

the article had had more information about Henrich's career as a gymnast and her
successes in that area. The source was easy to understand and increased my
understanding of eating disorders and the media.
