Politics isn't always a good thing to write about---people get so all-fired upset if you say anything too good or too bad about one particular candidate or another and no matter HOW hard you might TRY not to be bias, how the writer feels about a candidate ALWAYS seems to show through---To be fair, however, you could just write a LITTLE about what each one seems to be standing for AT THIS POINT and let the reader make his or her own mind up as to who (based on what is written) would make the best president.... You've got a WOMAN and a black man in the race this year---a VERY TOUCHY SUBJECT for way too many Americans.... no one ever seems to want to base their oppinions on the ISSUES... they are more into it for or against a persons GENDER, religion, race. ... maybe a good article would be to tie all that IN with the candidates... would be nice to set the record straight on Obama too--since he was BORN a Muslim but was raised a christian from the age of 6 years old... and maybe use FACTS rather then just opinions like everyone else has done when they've tried to "debate"....just don't write what someone else TELLS you---RESEARCH and RESEARCH AGAIN...everything written about SOMEONE is bias on one point or another... YOU as a journalist (even for just a high school newspaper) must decide how to report with the LEAST amount of bias as possible REGARDLESS OF YOUR OPINIONS.... Good luck on your article...!!!!! Whatever you do, do NOT just side with one side or the other---your "job" is to INFORM, not judge---you don't have to make it a conservative OR a liberal piece but it SHOULD contail bits of both...!!!

We found more questions related to the topic: Conservative newspaper articles
The first thing you have to figure out is what issues your readership is interested in. Talk to your friends and classmates and find out what they're concerned about. Find out what questions they want answered.
The trick to being a successful political writer is to bring the big issues down to a *human* level that people can relate to. Make sure your readers *understand* that these are the questions that will be in their hands in the years to come.
As a reporter in many different 'small-town' newspapers, I learned that almost all political issues boiled down to family, really - how will this affect my family? Will it affect our ability to have food, shelter, medical care? Will it affect my family's future enjoyment of the world? Will it affect our safety?
Your country has a lot of those kinds of questions, right now. And the answers are very important. Make sure you know what YOUR opinions and biases are before you start writing. If you're to be a reporter, you must work against your own biases and present a balanced piece. If you're going to be writing opinion pieces, make sure you research your answers and provide a rebuttal to as many opposing views as you can think of.
I can't tell you what issues to look into, because I am neither in your community, nor your age-group -- but that's where you should look for answers. You *can* write about anything you choose - the trick is getting others to read it, so you can make a difference.

you could talk about bush's "acheivements" (or lack thereof) over the last 7 years. or you could talk about things the conservative party stands for:
tax breaks to the rich
war over diplomacy
protection of the second amendment
disregard of the first amendment
supports job outsourcing

Write about how Hillary Rotten Clinton is a communist.
Also include that Barack Hussein Osama was a Muslim, who attended a Maddrassa. Don't forget that Barack is an invention by the communist liberal media.
