Elements of Journalism, Intro, Ch 1 & 2

I think this is the most interesting of all the texts we have to read because it sort of gives background and history of journalism. It is a good change of pace, I feel like all I do is write papers. What I wouldn't do once in a while do a calculus problem or read a bit of history. So reading this is nice. Especially since I find things about how media affects our society and government. My U.S. History and Government teacher in high school talked to us about a lot of things that are mentioned in this book, because they are a part of history. For example the Pentagon papers and Yellow journalism.
