Today's ICRN prompt: What are the characteristics of this kind of writing? What differences do you see between the various kinds of reporting (sub-genres if you will)? What sort of surprises you about journalism--so what is NOT the movie version of being a reporter.
NOTE: Reading folks posts from last week, please try to get around 200 words down. It can be more, but some folks wrote little more than one sentence. Additionally, please make direct references to what we read/listened to this week. Part of the point of this assignment is to make sure that you are actually doing the reading. Last week, everyone got a "VSR" for Very Strong Reading just for posting. Going forward, if it's not clear to me that you did the reading, you will earn a "BR" or Bad Reading. You can revise, of course, as long as you post today. If you are confused about ICRNs and how they are scored, take a look at the ICRN assignment page for this class.
Once you've posted your response to this post, read and respond to one other person by connecting one of the readings they don't talk about to the characteristics/differences/surprises they do talk about. Again, aim for about 100 words in your response unless you are dying write more.
