BUT FIRST: It is entirely possible that your comment won't go up immediately. Protect yourself by
a) writing your response first in something like a MS Word doc;
b) submit your comment only once, and then wait about 10 minutes before deciding that it didn't get on;
c) if you don't see it on the site after refreshing, then send your comment to me in the text of an email.
I'll check to see if somehow it went to the site's spam folder and get back to you.
Option I - While you are reading, take note of a couple of writer-ly moves Hersey makes as he tells the story. In a comment to this post, identify one. Be specific. Identify the page you are discussing, perhaps quote some text, and then either identify the move by a term you already know or give it a name. Explain its function and why you singled it out.
Option II – Provide a good definition of journalism, either by creating your own definition or quoting from a source. (If this source is online, you should of course cite it and provide a link.) Then, think back to our discussion of Stephen Glass and if/when telling the truth is important. Do you think Chapter 1 is an example of good journalism? (Obviously, identifying something as good or bad journalism requires you to define those terms.) Why or why not?
Option III – If you arrive here after a few of your classmates have posted comments, you have the option of responding to at least two of them. If you agree with a peer's comments, how can you add to what your classmates have written? If you disagree, why? Be specific, and post your comments as replies to those comments.
