These paragraphs should contain:
1) A topic sentence
2) An explanation of what the video or article covered
3) An explanation of how the video or article connects to our course content
4) YOUR reactions and opinions about the content
a. Why did you choose that scoop?

Florida governor Jeb Bush received 5,165 votes in Iowa. His vote total constitutes 2.8 percent of the Republican turnout, placing him in sixth place in the Iowa caucus. Yet no candidate in either party spent more in the race than Bush. According to MSNBC, Bush spent $14.9 million in Iowa, all coming from Bush's super PAC.
