Commentary: A psychonaut’s adventures in videoland

<i>Commentary</i>: A psychonaut's adventures in videoland
Amanda Nieto, Arts Editor Journalists are driven by curiosity. Their job is centered on asking questions, finding answers and relaying their findings to an audience. Hamilton Morris, a 24-year-old writer and filmmaker, is one such curious seeker who has taken his work to other-worldly dimensions through his quest to bring firsthand accounts on psychedelic drugs. In his series for Vice.com titled “Hamilton’s... 

News is more than celebrity

News is more than celebrity
Editorial Cartoon by Jason D. Cox At the University of La Verne, especially in the departments that are immersed into current events, many professors open each class session with the question, “Did you hear anything interesting happen in the news?” We are used to the silent response from our classmates as we look around the classroom, avoiding eye contact with the professor. Either that, or the... 

Dead celebrities kill media credibility

Steve Jobs drove a Mercedes without any license plates and was never ticketed for it. Steve Jobs was a supposed deadbeat dad. Steve Jobs died at such an early age of 56. Steve Jobs. Amy Winehouse. Michael Jackson. Heath Ledger. Anna Nicole Smith. These, among many more, are the names that reigned your television sets 24 hours, eight days a week. While across the nation, police brutally assault protesters... 

Journalists deserve more credit

When some people think about journalists, they think of primped up people who talk to a camera or go find out which celebrities are pregnant for their job at TMZ. In truth, some journalists risk their lives for important work. Lara Logan, CBS chief foreign correspondent, was sexually assaulted and beaten by a mob during her coverage of the celebration after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down in Egypt....

N.Y. Times: Fire McKinley

From the earliest days on the job, journalists are taught to report honestly and adhere to a specific code of ethics. One would assume that a reporter for the New York Times would be especially well-rehearsed in following these codes. However, New York Times reporter James C. McKinley proved this assumption wrong in his recent article titled “Vicious Assault Shakes Texas Town.” The article reported... 

Commentary: Where has the real news gone?

<i>Commentary</i>: Where has the real news gone?
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief Two weeks ago one of my communications professors commented that his news quizzes, which cover the top 10 names in the past week’s news, usually have one recurring name throughout the semester and was hoping Charlie Sheen would be removed very soon. That comment got me thinking about the media’s story priorities. Why does the media have low standards? They are... 

Media should slow down

Since the invention of the Internet, the rate at which the media churns out news has been increasing at an extremely rapid pace. In the early years people could get news briefs on their home page when they logged into their AOL or Yahoo! account. That pace increased exponentially when Twitter made its way into our lives in 2006. Media outlets ranging from the highly respected CNN and Fox News to celebrity... 

Commentary: Be ready for me, journalism industry

<i>Commentary</i>: Be ready for me, journalism industry
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief I obviously have chosen to attend the University of La Verne to receive a degree in journalism. I went into this knowing the industry is known to be dying. However, if a writer has the will or the way to get into it, they will thrive and work doing something they love to do. Thriving in the industry as a writer with a strong mind is something I have always dreamed... 

Commentary: Journalism is still alive

<i>Commentary</i>: Journalism is still alive
Carly Hill, Arts Editor People tell me all the time that journalism is dead. That there is no possible way to make it in a digital world with a print background. And you know what I have to say to that? Well, most of the time it involves a lot of yelling, perhaps some crying and a few curse words strung in for added effect. Which brings me to last weekend, when I added another weapon to my arsenal... 

Give Newsweek another good read

The future of print journalism looks a little less promising everyday as readership declines and more people turn to the Web for news and information. Once-credible magazines and newspapers are now seeing large layoffs, decreases in advertising and circulation revenue. Unfortunately, Newsweek is another publication suffering from that negative domino effect. Newsweek has seen dramatic losses for the...
