"Reward Assimilation" works to promote social capital. It encourages Americans to accept the Dream Act and allow undocumented immigrants to stay here once they finish their education if they were brought here as children. It states that learning English and finishing high school against odds earns these children their spots in American society, added to the fact that immigrants do the dirty work in low end jobs across the country. Inviting us to welcome these immigrants as valuable ... More »

This story does a good job of promoting social capital. it is about Mr. Konate who is a imam at a mosque in New York City. Not only does he preach, but acts as a mediator and interpreter between African immigrants and US hospitals and police. This promotes social capital because he is helping out a community of new immigrants to assimilate, or at least understand American culture and society. They can ban together as a social network of people in and out side of church since they ... More »

This is a good story because it is unbiased. It just states the fact of the story. Obama had a slip of semantics and referred to the Republicans as enemies rather than opponents and this article is giving him a chance to say what he meant. He was addressing the fact that Latinos do need to come out in members for the election so that they can help them gain a reform. This article is written through a geographical lens because it's directly to do with American politics. Cultural values expressed are leadership, seeing that it is showing the backlash that happens when our leader isn't speaking in politically correct terms, and also that he is trying to get people on his side and gain votes.

This is good journalism because it is clear and to the point. Republicans are trying to get Latino immigrants not to vote because they know they helped out Obama in the past. It is reliable because it links us to the actual site that explains the campaign of Latino Reform, and acts as a political watchdog to show the real intentions of the Republican ad. It's not actually to send a message to the white house they don't want Hispanics to vote, it's because they know they don't have their vote anyways. This editorial piece was written from a ethnic and geographic lens. Since it has to do with Hispanics in general, voting in America, this is the angle of the story. It's focus is small town values that Republicans wish to ... More »

This is good journalism because it provides insight on the issue of immigration and education. Robbie Brown doesn't seem to offer any sway to either one side of the debate, though he also only gives one quote from someone against the idea. The issue of whether or not illegal immigrants should be allowed to continue in post secondary studies is framed in this article from a institutional perspective. Thus, it lays responsibility of the decision on the school systems rather than communities or the law. This is an appropriate frame for this story since it is involving the education institutions themselves.

This is a good opinion piece because it quickly tells us what the story is without getting to into details about whether or not the author agrees with the current immigration policy. It presents the facts of the meeting, only slightly hinting that it agrees with the case presented by Colbert ,Murdoch and Bloomberg.

This opinion piece was framed in from a structural perspective. It emphasizes on the idea put forth by Ruport Murdoch, Stephen Colbert and Michael Bloomberg that immigration is necessary for society to function economically. For example, immigrants do many jobs that Americans would not like to do. Also, if immigration laws weren’t so harsh, the students who excel in their fields may choose to stay here and boost our economy rather than moving back home after graduation. Structural ... More »

Not really because the story is supposed to be about Barack Obama relieving racial tension in Marthas Vineyard, but it is not really about him at all. Instead it is about illegal immigrants stealing jobs, and the backlash that happened when a Brazilian man got in an accident with a white girl, and she died (though she was the one speeding). This story is all over the place, and has nothing to do with the title.

This is a decent news story. The inclusion of the president of Clean Air Watch quoting on the governments initiative was a nice touch, but it would have been better if he had more to say about government practices and past reports. Also, this article lacks a bit of information. When the article states that the government institutions will be monitored but not penalized for lowering energy emissions and waste, but low performers will be exposed on "web sites" for the public, I felt that a link to these sites would have been necessary. A more interesting article could be a future followup of these government institutions to see if they actually keep their promises of becoming more energy efficient in various areas, with a recap ...

I believe that this story would be considered good journalism. It is informative about Obama's new health program and it's tax credits for individuals and small businesses. It is relevant because health care affects everybody in the United States in one way or another. The video at the end was the icing on the cake for this story, because it personalized the issue of life and death when it comes to the affordability of medication. There was also a watchdog conscious element to this story because it calls the president out on not backing himself up against criticisms concerning being "anti-business". He has been too busy with economics and health care reform to try to save his own face in the media world. Though Obama is ... More »
