This is a critique of three different publications owned by the mass media company Hearst. I’ll be looking at one newspaper, one magazine, and one online publication and offer my thoughts on their content, editing, and composition/presentation.
The conversation was surprising, to say the least.
The soon-to-be Vice President is famous for his stance on LGBT issues, and his new neighbors have a problem with that. Mike Pence has temporarily relocated to a Washington D.C. neighborhood ahead of his January inauguration and is now greeted with the colorful rainbow flags of the LGBT
community every time he leaves his residence.
An article from Time Magazine covers the story in detail, including interviews with neighbors who say that they think this is a good way to express their disagreements with his beliefs.
My critique for this article concerns how short it actually is. It includes hyperlinks that can take you to other pages that describe his “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” but I think that the article could have benefited from further explanation of why people disagree with his beliefs. There is only one quote from one of the neighbors who put up the flags, and the quote adds nothing new to the narrative.
Ever wondered what the world would look like if the countries with the most people had the most space? Thanks to an article from mentalfloss.com, you can now see it for yourself. This map shows you the world’s countries swapped according to population.
“[D]on’t do it without a plan. Because the very last thing a tense situation needs is someone full of good intentions but with no knowledge of de-escalation tactics or self-defense.” Ideas for moving beyond symbolism to activism in the wake of the US presidential election.
These costumes are fine. But some just won’t ever be okay.
Rock on, Mr. President.
