My name is Michael Campbell and I am a sophmore at Towson University. We were asked to participate in NewsTrust as a part of our Communications class this semester. I think this will be very interesting because I've never done something like this before and I feel like I can learn a lot from this. I don't read the news, so this will be a good way to get access to a lot of different stories.

It doesn't have anything that people need to know. It's basically digging up dirt on the other people running for mayor and making everyone except the person they support look bad. There's just not a lot of useful information in here and it's not something that is terribly important to the public to know about

This article definitely asks a lot of important questions about our country that some would be afraid to ask. It really makes you think about what our country has done in the past and what it's doing today. Being able to critically examine the wrong doings of the US in the past is very refreshing to hear, and might make people now think a little bit more about how we're involved around the world and how self righteous we are.

The title and the article itself are kind of contradictory, it's asking if there's been too much attention being drawn to the wedding, and yet they're reporting about the wedding... It shows how a wedding in the 21st century is being sold to us and how many different channels we can get this information that ultimately means little to the grand scheme of the world.

Guantanamo has always been a hot topic for this country and this is another good report on what is going on. The reporting done through Wiki Leaks shows what is actually going on and informs people everywhere. The reporter who wrote a book on Guantanamo and had access to the secret files there is a very important source of information for the public and the government to see.

Some of the sources they quote are very good and some are very vague. It might be just because of the topic of the article being very sensitive. It makes it feel a little less informative than it is, but still offers a lot of information to the people reading. They do a good job of staying factual, and give the reader a good in depth view of U.S. and Pakistan right now.

The author has a lot of good points about how Obama was bullied into this and shouldn't have been, but can't only blame Obama. I'm sure this has happened throughout history as well, and just not given attention. So kudos for them bringing attention to a topic that should be watched, but you can't be so biased about the whole topic. Even the title "Cowardly, stupid and tragically wrong" sounds very uneducated and biased towards what's going on. The author gives a very good argument for what's going on, but I feel they go about it the wrong way and that's a big problem for a lot of issues in the U.S. People going about them the wrong way.

Everyone is very concerned about Japan and the Nuclear problems that are going on right now, and this article lets people know exactly what's happening. It gives all of the facts about the plants and what they are doing to try and solve the problem and also tells you about the people involved in the situation.

The articles title and the content have two totally different stories. The article itself has nothing to do with Obama coming to visit the Vineyard, it's just trying to grab the attention of readers to entice them to the article. All of the specifics about the incidents that happened in Martha's Vineyard are not reliable; the sources are mostly anonymous or just vague and you get a sense that you're getting mixed facts from the author. A lot of the article does not read very well, there are a couple parts where you have to stop and re-read because of the jumbled wording.

The only reason I said it was poorly written is because there's a lot of the story that is missing from here but that's because it was done through Twitter, where you're limited. It's so important that this kind of journalism happens, because it's very raw and you can't hide what was going on. Being able to post on Twitter while simultaneously seeing news happens help to get this story out faster and prevent any lies to be told about the story. This is a great representation of how journalism is today and how these sites help get news out to people faster.

I feel like the journalists connection with the city is a good thing in this case, where it's usually a bad thing because of bias. He knows the ups and downs of the city because he's been there and wants to draw attention to what's going on there. This article brings up a lot of important questions about a city that used to literally be the heartbeat of American transportation, that is no regularly regarded as a Hell by many people. He brings up a good point about if this happen in Dallas or San Diego there would be national attention to this right away; it's the same with a lot of issues in the country right now and offers a very good comparison
