"To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible;

I have a broken space bar but for the sake of this blog entry I am copying and pasting a space between each word.

EDIT: At school now, fixed the entry and added SPACES. 3/22/10

I am not even required to do blog entries right now,because I am on spring break.

So, the blog entry to accompany this will follow when I have a working spacebar. Copying and pasting spaces between each word is tedious, but for journalism it has to be done.

In my next blog post I want to discuss commenting on online news websites.
My father uses my name as his username to comment on various news websites, because he says it's easier to remember.

Can people's futures and careers be compromised due to comments left under their name on a website?

This story made me sick to my stomach.

Drunk, high dad leaves baby in oven overnight, police say

"The oven door was slightly ajar, and the oven was not turned on."


That quote from the article sticks out to me for many reasons. It's hard to be objective when covering a story like that, but that sentence makes me think that the reporter is defending the man. It doesn't say WHO said that the door was ajar and the oven wasn't turned on. Later on in the article a police report is cited, but it does not mention the aforementioned quote.

I would like to discuss and analyze the way different news organizations cover the same story.

P.S. Last semester I did a 20+ page long analysis/research project on the Conservative Bias of Fox News
