I think this is pretty good journalism because it is very relevant and there is a lot of support for the claims made. I do think it is important to recognize the events that have been happening recently in regards to bullying on the internet, but also we have to keep in mind that this is an ongoing problem. Just because two stories got into the mainstream news does not mean that they are the only cases. I think this article kinda of disregards that fact. I think the support used may have been lacking sourcing but there were a lot of opinion examples. The situation with the woman and the "Fuck List" is a good contrast to the other stories in pointing out a definite flaw in the social acceptability of situations like this. I do not think that people are naturally bullies but I do think that the internet is an easy outlet for them to be, if they realize it or not.
