Methodology changes include:

Jordan Klepper’s show is pretty amazing - by a meta-analysis of news.


He talks allot about satire.

One of TYT’s reporters was arrested, [link], and Vox did a piece [link] on why protests are reported to focus on the violent parts.

I’ll have to make sure I either embed myself with the police or get an understanding that I’m filming the crowd in general. Possibly getting a press t-shirt?? - most pieces won’t need this.

Hello Again

  • Just keep writing,

Last night I reviewed some pieces to write about, and today I’m getting started on them.

I’m going to go over those pieces, summaries of other publications concerning local, US, and world news,

then go over the original work I’m working on.

For wyoming news

  • Local Entrepreneur competition
  • City Council Resignation
  • Renovation Project
  • Harvard Scholar
  • School District Asking about guns
  • Rock Springs Couple, Gillete man
  • Emergency Manager retiring
  • Barrasso offered a job
  • Wyoming supreme court justice might retire
  • Opinion piece (casper tribune) - all politics by purcell
  • Wind Energy Conference
  • Great Lakes to end service

in US news

  • Bump stock purchases
  • Girlfriend of las-vegas shooter returned for questioning, no previous knowledge, just a guy, and Fox news is asking about her citizenship
  • Timline for the shooter,
  • US Law makers are proposing legislation for the NSA
  • Puerto Rico recovery is being examined by US lawmakers
  • Tillerson was pissed at trump, required an intervention by pence

World news

  • Spanish king ignored catalans, while defiant leaders move to declare independance. Their voting centers had been smashed in, and the crackdowns appear to be shifting opinion on them. They fault the king

  • Solar energy is growing
  • Australians might be having some sort of gun referendum
  • CIA says NK might act soon
  • Trump/russia collusion can’t be rulled out
  • In syria a chemical weapons watchdog found sarin was used in parch

That’s iit for the short pieces. To recap the long pieces I’m working on:

  • LGBT in wyoming - Rendesvous interviews
  • Giving in albany county

Previous pieces included:

  • Shield Laws
  • Military Surplus
  • Surveillance

In terms of meta and following the people who report the news,

a satirical show by Jordan Klepper, called the opposition, got started, and I appreciate what they say in interviews.

One of TYT’s reporters has been arrested covering a protest.

Related to that, Vox did a piece on why protest coverage focuses on one part.

What I take from these tidbits are to cover the group in general,

and satire itself is dangerous with reporting the news straight.
