Students in the Tuesday recitation sections who might be finding it challenging to post their team’s report topic may post it as a comment here. At the very least, email it to Prof. Cifatte ASAP so that he may gangmail the class with it. Have fun!

    For tomorrow’s recitation in group number two, we will be speaking on the story of Dewey Bozella and the murder of a 92 year old woman. He was put in prison in the year 1977 and it wasn’t until recently that his trial was reopened and he was set free as an innocent man. He always dreamed of being a boxer but unfortunately the 26 years of his life spent in prison took that dream away until he was finally able to achieve one fighting match. We will be discussing this story from three news outlets, CBS news, ABC news, and the NY Times. Each article is available on the main websites for each news network. We will also be speaking about some key terms that we have learned in class, for example, the term news bias, which I found relevant in the CBS news article I researched.

    Our group, Group 6 from the 1:00 recitation class, will be doing our presentation around the Virginia Tech shootings, focusing on articles from FOX News, The New York Times, and MSNBC. Our articles all were written on the day the shootings happened, before the shooter himself was identified.
