Blog Assignment for Week 3 –
Posted on your blog before 12pm Wednesday.
Read Satire’s Brew – Lecture One
Watch these two episodes on CC.com:
September 19th 2012 — watch all the clips about Chaos on Bullshit Mountain. DO NOT watch the Pink clip, unless you want to… because she’s awesome.
December 16th, 2012 — watch all the clips about 9/11 First Responders. DO NOT watch the Mike Huckabee interview, unless you want to…
What to blog about:
After watching the above episodes, reading Satire’s Brew answer the following:
Was Jon Stewart a journalist or comedian? Why did you choose that side? 500-750 words.
Required: Use the clips, Satire’s Brew Lecture One, try to use KellervGreenwald… If you do not use the clips or Satire’s Brew you will receive a failing grade.
Recommended: Watch other Jon Stewart clips while he was host of The Daily Show. All episodes on CC.com
If you haven’t sent your TA your blog address – do so now. If you haven’t received communication from your TA, check your other email address. If still nothing – email Darres at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you missed assignment 1 – KellervGreenwald, my advice would be to do it. Accept the late grade but get it done.
That’s all for now!
Have a great week!
