the newsroom

Please respond to EACH of the following discussion topics and submit them to the discussion forum as a single post. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length. Then, make at least two thoughtful responses to your fellow students’ posts. If you haven’t recently, please review the Rules of Discussion.

In your discussion this week you have to write a short newscast. Select three (and only three) current news stories. Select the three stories that you think are the most important to our nation and society.

  • Write an original headline for each story.
  • Write no more than three sentences summarizing each story.
  • Include the full html web address for each story.

*It is very important to only write on three stories and keep your summaries under three sentences as this simulates how challenging it is to explain very complicated new stories in very restricted time and keeping the attention of viewers.

Your initial post will look something like this:

Catchy Headline #1

Summary sentence 1. This is the second sentence. And finally a third sentence.…

Catchy Headline #2

Summary sentence 1. This is the second sentence. And finally a third sentence.…

Catchy Headline #3

Summary sentence 1. This is the second sentence. And finally a third sentence.…

For your follow up posts, question your peer’s newscasts. Why did they select the stories they did? Were there other current events that they seemed to miss? Was there any bias in how the stories were presented? Was there any bias in how those stories were summarized? Why did they include certain news stories? Why did they ignore others? You may also respond to your peer’s questions for a follow post.

Helping us retire with dignity

Social Security and Medicare keep millions of Americans out of poverty. This allows millions of people to live out their lives in dignity. These essential programs are provided by government at far less cost than would be possible from the private sector.

Protecting our freedoms

Our political and economic rights are the foundation of our democracy and capitalist economy. We often think of our rights as a protection against the heavy hand of government. Without them, we’d be nothing.

Educating everybody

Our economy and democracy would be impossible without an educated, skilled populace. From the beginning of our nation, offering free and universal public education has been one of the most important functions of government. The federal government has always had a role, from the 1785 Land Act and the land-grant colleges established under Lincoln to the GI Bill and beyond.
