Azizah Badwan SCM205 CH. 9 Discussion Starters March 11, 2016 1. What is meant by the “devils advocate” role of the media? The “devils advocate” role of the media refers to the press, in most instances, being so negative about the institutions they cover, that they’re not covering all news, but only the “bad news.” 2. What is the current state of the newspaper industry? The newspaper industry was originally struggling to survive due to factors such as rising costs, declining readership and the new tablet technologies. However, currently, print circulation has stabilized and newspaper reading on the Internet has climbed exponentially. 3. What is the importance of objectivity to a reporter? Objectivity is important to a reporter because it demonstrates fairness with the intention of remaining neutral in reporting a story, which has the power to demonstrate the professionalism and merit of the reporter and the publication.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
