Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby sentenced 3 to 5 yeas in prison for sexual assaulting Andrea Constand. 14 years ago at Cosby’s house he gave her a pill that drugged Andrea then he sexually assaulted her. A decade after Andrea came out and told her story about Cosby and then a decade after more woman came out and said that they have been sexually assaulted by Cosby too.

The format of this articles was very good. They put all of the most recent events with Cosby at the top and then the history of the story, and then at the bottom all of the comments people had said about it.

Celia Arozamena, an Iowa State golfer was found dead at Ames golf course. Iowa State University is taking a lot of caution around campus now that this accident has happen. Making sure that students know that there are safe rides for all students to call when they want an escort somewhere.

In this article the story line was not focused on the main part of the story, Celia Arozamena. The reporter, and students talked about Mollie Tibbets, (Iowa University student that was murdered earlier this summer) more than Celia Arozamena. I think the reporters should have focused the news article more on Celia because they were at ISU reporting and it was to notify the audience about Celia, not Mollie.

Amber Guyger a female officer faces manslaughter. Guyger entered  Botham Jeans apartment thinking it was hers after coming home from work. While she was still in uniform she opened up the door which was unlocked and it was pitch black in the apartment and she saw a shadow of someone. Guyger pulled out her gun and shot Jean three times. A co council member is now saying she shot him because he was black.

CNN had a good lead to the story. It really drew me in and I ended up reading the whole news article. I find it interesting that Amber thought that it was her apartment even though her key did not fit in the door. But I do not think she shot Jean just because he was black. I think she shot him because she thought someone broke in her apartment.

In the campaign Kaepernick reads “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything,” This quote refers to his kneeling protest over social injustice. The publicity, however is both positive and negative.

Nike’s decision to sponsor Kaepernick resulted in loss of many customers. Some people are even burning and throwing away Nike gear because of Kaepernick’s involvement.

A news article form Bustle talked about how people are boycotting Nike gear. Numerous social media users, upset about the campaign post pictures on social media showing Nike gear being ripped up and burned.

A famous country singer, John Rich, tweeted a picture of cut up socks and captioned it “Our Soundman just cut the Nike swoosh off his socks. Former marine. Get ready @Nike multiply that by millions.”

Despite the backlash against the campaign there are many positive outcomes to Kaepernick’s roll. Pittsburgh Post- Gazette defends Kaepernick’s previous actions stating that he has the right to sit during the anthem.

The freedom to express an opinion is one of the many reasons this country is the greatest in the world. This freedom of expression and how unpopular it is makes the campaign so monumental.
