Story pitches

The biggest gripe I have about news writing at the moment is our outside assignments, but I can understand the logic behind it. Jason Pugh commented on his dislike about the Homecoming stories. Life is busy enough as it is, but now we all have to find the time to go to events and report on them. It's an inconvenience most of the time, but I would much rather have someone tell what story to cover than find one on my own. Journalism is still pretty new to me, so I don't need the extra stress of uncovering my own scoop. Think of it this way everyone: at least all of us don't have to attend the same event at one time. Imagine how difficult it would be for us all to 1.) make it to the one time only event & 2.) write unique articles that don't overlap each other. Come to think of it, I guess that's what real journalists do, huh?

I don't mind coming up with my own new story idea if it means I'm not assigned a sports event.

Katie, I understand.. I am not too pleased with this either, as my brother's bachelor party is this weekend, and I won't be able to attend his afternoon activities.
