WK6 Free and Open press

– Is it important that we have a free and open press Why/Why not?

Yes it is, the fact that we have the freedom of press stands as a symbol for how free we are. As a large nation some things are bound to go wrong so we leave it to the media to let us know when something does.

-What would happen if we didn’t have a free and open press?

If we didn’t have a free press we wouldn’t know when things went wrong we would be living in a false sense of security. The people would lose their voice.

-Would it be better or worse? Why/Why not?

It would seem better but it would actually be worse. The media wouldn’t talk about the bad stuff so we would assume that everything was fine, we would be under a blanket of false security while the government just got more and more corrupt.

-Would social media be different? How?

Yes, people wouldn’t be able to state their opinion any more, at least not freely. So people we look up to for standing up for what they believe in would be arrested for just that.



WK5 Social media

  1.  Facebook is the leading social media site in news. Followed closely by Youtube and Twitter.
  2. The majority of users spread the news by re posting the video, image or story. However others will talk about it, or post their own video or picture of a news worthy event.
  3. Most people discover the news by using a social media site, the site will have a link or some information about a topic and from there the user can choose weather or not they wish to learn about it.
  4.  On Facebook the most viewed subjects are entertainment, events in a community, or sports; the least viewed however is business.
  5. People however still prefer to talk about the news in person rather then over social media.

WK5 keizer times

Things I Like:
The format, its simple, when you log on you see the title then the main story
The easy to see subcategories, if I want to read up on a specific subject I can get to it easily
The search bar, if I want to read a specific article now I don’t have to go looking for it

Things I think they could improve:
There are a lot of adds very close to where I need to click if I want to read an article
If you click on a sub category how small anything is
The only school that gets a specific subcategory is MkNary
