News Comment 2

This week the article I chose to write about it titled “U.N. Human Rights Chief Condemns Trump’s Attacks on Media,” written by Nick Cumming-Bruce. The article explained peoples concerns for journalists when Trump is calling out news organizations as being “fake news.”

It appears that most people, except our president himself, can see how self-involved in a sense he is. With so many greater events taking place such as the missile North Korea shot over Japan, Hurricane Harvey, and the uprising of neo-nazis, it appears that Donald Trump’s main priority is accusing the media of false reports.

Sarah Huckabee, the White House press secretary, stated in an email that “…The president is focused on growing our economy, creating jobs, securing our border and protecting Americans. Since those are also the priorities of most Americans, hopefully the media will make covering them theirs.”

My question is, why would huge news organizations such as CNN and NYTimes, which are amongst the most trusted news outlets of 2017, be giving false news. Yes, Trump may not be the most well-liked presidents, however, he has said things and shown unpleasant sides of himself that you would never expect in the man running a country. If he can confidently say, “grab ’em by the pussy” and not see just how degrading and inappropriate that is, he has no room to be offended when news organizations release certain new stories about actions he regrets.How are there so many people out there that still support our president who has proven time and time again, that he truly does not have the best interest of ALL Americans at

I would also like to know how are there so many people out there that still support our president who has proven time and time again, that he truly does not have the best interest of ALL Americans at heart.

Mari Pizzini

Mari Pizzini was born and raised in Helena, Montana. When her graduation from Helena High School came around, her mind was made up that the next best step for her was Morningside College. When making her decision, she decided Morningside was the school for her because the bowling program and the campus were both to her liking. Once accepted, Pizzini chose to double major in English, because of her love of reading, and Mass Communication, with her degree she aspires to land a job as either an editor or publisher.

Mari is an only child who enjoys spending her free time bowling, reading, 4wheeling, or traveling. In fact, this past summer Mari and her family were able to check “travel across all fifty states,” off of their list. One place she still has her sights on is Italy, she wishes to see the city and visit her family across the sea.

News Comment 1

For my first news comment, I decided to read an article from the NY Times titled “Military Transgender Ban to Begin Within 6 Months, Memo Says,” written by Julie Hirschfeld Davis. July of 2017, Donald Trump abruptly announced that Military Officials will be required to discharge active transgender troops because he believes “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

The article was well written, gave plenty of details, and included multiple sources.
