What is news, how does it affect you, and would you pay any attention to this news if you were not enrolled in CJ105 right now? Be specific in providing a recent example in the news in the past month.
In my opinion news is the reporting of past and current events in the world through any communication medium. I spend at least an hour a day watching, reading, or listening to news. Most of my news consumption would be done regardless of CJ 105. My major source of news comes in the form of sports updates and highlights on ESPN, mostly for entertainment. I also get a lot of news from CNN, FOXNEWS, and MSNBC. These networks provide me with political news that I feel a sense of responsibility to stay current with. For example, because so many individuals have given their lives to protect our right to vote, I feel responsible to make an educated vote in this coming presidential election. Overall, I feel that the news affects me in two ways; providing me with entertainment, and with information about stories I care about.
