A five-minute news package is a great idea. Tell me, what makes it activist? I like that you're exploring in this piece how others are using social media to speak out in the current political climate. And I also like that you are going to be asking a question within the piece. Why don't you consider answering the question? If you want to make this an activist piece in itself, perhaps you can go beyond looking at the activism of others. something for you to consider.
One thing in the proposal that left me a bit confused is in the first paragraph when you say you'll run interviews in Feb and March, and then a few sentences later refer to it as a year-long investigation. You'll need to clarify, in your pitch, exactly the timing of this work -- as it is due at the end of this spring semester.
I'll be posting some specifics for the pitch. I look forward to hearing yours!
You have some great sources listed in the reference section at the back of you literature review paper, but most of them i don't see within the body of the paper itself. You'll need to incorporate all of them and cite them properly within the body of the review. When you turn in the final paper that accompanies your new project, you can fix that. The final paper will consist of a short written description of your project and the literature review.
I hope the project itself is going well.
