Amid the 2020 COVID-19 shutdown, at least three Southern states are pushing to reopen their economies. Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee have released plans to open some non-essential businesses as soon as Tuesday, April 21. “We believe that we can do this if compliance remains at the high level that it has been, we canContinue reading “Southern States Plan to Reopen Amid the Pandemic”

Media Engagement and a Reflection of Authority

Discussion 6 I believe holding anyone accountable, regardless of status or standing. In a way, the media does sometimes play the role of “watchdog”, such as by questioning or exposing certain figures or leaders in today’s society. However, regardless of whom they choose to throw the spotlight on, it would be just as much likely to say that thatContinue reading “Media Engagement and a Reflection of Authority”

Covid-19 and news coverage

I simply hope that the COVID 19 and its effects will pass quickly, especially if things will get worse before they get better. I feel that the U.S may have possibly underestimated the virus or simply didn’t take it that seriously in the beginning.

What news topics I think are oversaturated or poorly covered…

Poorly covered: Lately I’ve stumbled upon some news about a locust outbreak in Africa and possibly other countries. I wouldn’t have known about this event if I hadn’t stumbled upon a video online by chance. I feel like topics like these should get more attention, especially if it is far-reaching and serious.
