I feel some disconnect with class. I do not listen to much news these days with school, work and two small children who are old enough to hear the wrong thing. I have lost interest and feel that so much of what is being put on the news is not a story that I care to learn about. This leads me to studying how news stories are portrayed by different media outlets. I do not listen or watch the news so I am not familiar with things like Late Night Comedy. I do know the names of some people but I do not know anything about them. I could rant and rave about how sarcastic they are in their news casts but I have to be honest and admit that I have never watched an entire episode from any Late Night Comedy shows. If I do watch the news I like to watch my local news station who provides local and national news. I do listen and know that there is more going on out in the world that I can learn about and if that is the case I normally up the story to read from different online sources. I want to become more open after taking this class and gaining an understanding of the importance of hear the entire story.
