Pink In The Rink! 10/25/12

Pink in the Rink

I love this story! Mostly because I strongly support cancer awareness of all kinds. Cancer awareness hits close to home for me. This is a great, newsworthy story. Its the kind of story that is inspirational, involves a lot of people and for a good cause. The writer has a good use of quotes by the “main character.” The information is well spread out through the story; he uses the upside down pyramid well.

This is also a good broadcast story. It would be easy to summarize for radio (etc..). It can be short and clean cut. The material is easy to understand for people who have never heard about it, as well.

Face Tattoo

When I first saw the title I could not believe it. This is definantly news worthy, one because it’s not normal, and two because it’s so entertaining to others. Who in their right mind puts a tattoo advertisement on their forehead! That is going to be there for life. Despite the fact she says she doesn’t regret it- she will.

I thought it was hilarious that she did it for only $10,000, for her son’s school. Mostly because I got about that much in scholarship money! If I were her, I wouldn’t get a stupid tattoo and set a bad example for my son. I would teach him how to work hard and earn money, like scholarships. That would give him something to focus on, rather then the negativity going on in his life.

As a side note, the way the article was set up was very overwhelming. There were no paragraphs to separate text and a lot of information was mashed all together.

Daytime In No Time- 10\4\12

Daytime In No Time

I found something a little different this week. This was a video news article\interview, and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I understand the idea is to cover a lot of things in a short amount of time. However, there was lots of pointless content. This made it really confusing.

At first, it’s hard to figure out who the host of the video is. Then when you do, it’s not even the person who was talking the most.

As for the the actual news parts; The handbag is ridiculous! Who in their right mind would want that? Like they said on the video, “A small child could fit in that.” ¬†Nicki and Mariah need to grow up. They are like 30+ years old and ¬†arguing like children, on a highly watched, public T.V. show.

Unfortunately, this is probably news worthy because people love gossip and fashion. That doesn’t keep it from being dumb. I hate the way this article\interview was put together. It took way too long to get to the point of the story too.
