This course will examine the current news events happening in the United States and throughout the world. We will examine newspapers, magazines, videos, blogs, web sites, and other digital media outlets. You will be expected to write about your opinions and respond to what's going on in the media.

Please feel free to use any of the sites listed to the right as reference to what's going on in the world. Please understand that various media outlets have bias and political agendas. With this knowledge, I urge you to visit a number of sites to see different takes on the same events. I also suggest that you take time to watch news programs; whether that be the local news, national news, or "fake" news programs like The Daily Show or The Colbert Report. Read blogs, watch YouTube videos, discuss, debate, engage and stay informed!
