Speech at historic Cooper Union outlines details
Chris Cee's insight:

According to President Obama, Wall Street needs reforming. President Obama comes to New York City at Cooper Union to discuss a major issues taking place in the economy. President Obama talks about his reforms and how they can better the country. The president spoke about his four-point strategy to getting Wall Street reformed.

He believes the country should be able to make strong investments and get loans. He says it is what makes America what it is today.

 I remember my time reporting for Scholastic. It was a great experience. It helped realize that I'm a great writer for such a young age. I never actually knew that journalism would be what Id want to pursue as a career, but I'm glad I started pretty young because I know a bit about the journalism world than your average teenager should know! I love to write. It isn’t a hobby that I do everyday, but it is something that I find I can do at a leisurely pace.

I hope to use my experience as a Kid Reporter to apply for great internships in the city. I want to join the newspaper crew and help turn it into a high school paper that could pass for a New York Times.

Anderson Cooper anchors Anderson Cooper 360°, a nightly newscast committed to going beyond the headlines to tell stories in-depth and from multiple points of view, airs weeknights at 10 p.m. ET on CNN.
Chris Cee's insight:

Anderson Cooper is anchor of Anderson Cooper 360°, a primetime newscast which delivers news more in-depth with deeper stories then the headlines. Joining CNN in December 2010, Cooper began as a weekend anchor for the network. He then moved on to cover international stories including anniversaries of 9/11 and coverage on the aftermaths of hurricane Katrina and earthquakes in Japan and Haiti. Cooper studies at Yale University and graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. Cooper now lives in New York. Anderson Cooper is a great journalist figure. He is really inspirational in how he produces stories to the public. I'm amazed when I read this biographic article on his accomplishments. I never knew Cooper traveled to so many international disasters in the world. He shows his huge passion for the knowledge of the world. I also never knew he was such a great journalist; he won an Emmy. An Emmy! That is a great achievement. That inspires me to want to win Emmy in my journalism day, or maybe something bigger than that.

Students in broadcast journalism learn to report, produce, and deliver the news for radio, TV, and other broadcast media.
Chris Cee's insight:

Having a degree in broadcast journalism could bring you to a wide-ranging ocean of fields in the journalism world. You may want to express the political world to the public eye or interview celebrities on the latest scoop in their lives. You may even want to be a sports announcer for a major sports channel. These are great ideas, but the major of broadcast journalism focuses on those whom prefer to be the producers behind camera. They like to handle the backstage equipment and be sure everything is edited and produced correctly.

This article was amazing in my search for a career! I always knew I wanted be in the journalism world, but the article helped discover I want to be in the field of broadcast journalism. This is a great start to be in when planning to become a huge producer possible someday.

The website article really helps me narrow how I'm going to get started on my career path. It’s great that the website gives me a little questionnaire of why I would even want to work to receive this major. It even helped start to think of colleges with great journalism programs for the very near future.

Robin Roberts' Biography

Robin Roberts' Biography | Journalism: My FUTURE Profession | Scoop.it
Anchor of Good Morning America
Chris Cee's insight:

Robin Roberts anchors ABC’s “Good Morning America.” She graduated in 1983 from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. She began her work on-air as a commentator on ESPN from 1990 to 2005, and then moved on to co-anchor of “GMA” in May 2005. She has broken barriers in the journalism world on-air. She has interviewed the Obamas, actor Lisa Niemi, and the list goes on and on. Her work has led the program, “GMA,” to three consecutive Emmy awards. Roberts has delivered live presidential coverage. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2007. Yet, she didn’t let this discourage her from continuing her work, even after a devastating time for her during Hurricane Katrina.

Robin Roberts’ story always inspires me. Not only to become a journalist, but to never let obstacles stand in the way of pursuing your dreams. I see Robins as a legend now. She has a star quality that gets you to always remember her face. I want to inspire people, just as she has inspired me. She really brings a full-figure to journalism and television broadcasting itself.

Kate Rose's comment, January 5, 2013 3:07 PM
This article was about Robin Roberts. It talked not only about her career as a journalist, but also about her career in sports during college. Chris’s reflection was spot on in saying that Ms. Roberts is truly an inspiration. This article talked a lot about the struggles she has experienced, but she never gave up, and Chris is right in saying that she is an inspiration to never let obstacles stop you from pursuing your dreams.
I would want this career because Ms. Roberts shows how through journalist, you really affect so many people. Through Good Morning America, Ms. Roberts is the first person to give the people their news for the day and what she tells them, can affect what they do all day long. This type of influence is something so powerful and so meaningful.
While I felt Chris’s reflection was spot on, he didn’t talk much about the amount of work Ms. Roberts had to do before becoming an anchor of Good Morning America. For years, she worked smaller jobs to get her place in the industry. A huge part of the journalism industry is that you have to pay your dues to get your spot.

Chris Cee's insight:

Broadcast journalism careers include writing, producing, editing, and reporting. They all intend to share news through a news channel on TV or radio. Common broadcast journalism careers include on-air duties such as being a news anchor or reporter, and backstage jobs such as managers and news editors. Broadcast journalism jobs are broken down into two groups: on-screen talents and off-screen production managers. These two groups come together and produce a mass success with teamwork. Newscasters are most recognizable on the news team. They conduct interviews and share stories with the public. According to the U.S. BLS, many broadcast journalism jobs require a 4-year degree in journalism, mass communications, or broadcasting. This article really helps when it comes to where you want to be in the journalism world. You can choose to be on-air or working backstage. I want to be an on-air newscaster.  The experience you gain and the extraordinary people you have the honor of meeting. Then you get the chance to share news stories with the world. Some stories are a true honor in sharing with the public. Others can really influence a person heart and mind. I want to be able to make a difference in people’s lives. This is my calling card to do so.

Jarrod Sinibaldi's comment, January 13, 2013 4:36 PM
The goal of this article is to explain why journalism is a good career and why the author wishes to be a journalist. I agree with article that journalism can make you very worldly, and you can come in contact with many famous people. However, I was struck by the many grammatical mistakes throughout the article; if he wants to be a journalist, he better fix his writing! Chris did a good job of summing up the article in ten or so sentences, and it is clear to see that he is very passionate about this career. I would like this career because it is creative, allows you to travel, and can give you a great purpose in life.
