Ethics in Media and You

If you have ever watched a few episodes of ‘The Newsroom” on HBO, you will know that ethics in media is a common theme found throughout the series. One of my favorite moments in Season 1 is when main character Will McAvoy (played by Jeff Daniels) dives into a four-minute long public apology and talks about what he calls the “Media Elite”:

Do you as an audience member feel like more media sources should take this stance? Have you ever noticed a lack of ethics in coverage of something? Or do you feel that the media generally does a good job of delivering you information?

If you have a hot minute to spare in your day, follow this link to fill out a form on how you feel about ethics in media. I’m conducting a research paper for my senior class, and any response would help add content.

Winter 2013

Being raised in Colorado most of my life, it’s kind of embarrassing admitting that I’m not an avid snowboarder/skier. I tried snowboarding once, and I’m pretty sure I’d like skiing, but there’s something I much rather do this winter, even if it means doing it by myself.

And that’s snowshoeing.

I don’t care if it’s too lame for other people, or not a fast enough sport. It’s basically snow hiking. I love the mountains, and since I don’t want to stay cooped up in a lodge every time my friends want to go up there, I thought it’d be the perfect alternative.

As an aside, I think I want to get into indoor rock wall climbing so I’d be ready for next spring/summer outdoors.
