10/7/13 The Newsroom Workbook #6 IMPACT: An example of impact demonstrated in this episode was Casey Anthony trial was going on. This trial only impacted herself and her daughter and close family. However the whole country felt the need to know every step of the court process. TIMELINESS: Recent events have higher news value and this is shown in the Newsroom when Anthony Weiner’s tweet was brought up. The newsroom was already so tight with time because of other stories but had to squeeze in time about a sexual tweet because it was so recent and would get a lot of attention and feedback. PROMINENCE: An example of Prominence was shown when the tweet of Anthony Weiner was discovered. Tweets like these happen all the time. However it was a big deal because Anthony Weiner is not just anybody and is in the spotlight. PROXIMITY: An example of proximity is shown in this episode of newsroom when Anthony Weiner’s story became more important and got time on tv rather than a protest that happening farther away.

    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.
