But people still need to recognise we have an institutional responsibility to do oversight on the President” Garry Bass, Congress. This quote supports my view on the Congress being a watchdog. If the Congress is a lapdog, the President can have a free ride on running the country how he wishes and not represent the people’s view. However that is not the case as the President cannot do everything which pleases him. However, looking at the statistics such as Bill Clintons presidency, in the first 2 years which was a united government, Congress exercised limited oversight, and when needed to, asked softball questions, however , when Republicans took over Congress, things got much harder as they seek to hold the President to account, and after a while, impeach.

By treating the decision to drop the bomb not as a single act but as the outcome of many organizational routines, historians can see more clearly that progress on the bomb came slowly, and indeed might not have come at all if scientists had not broken through the bureaucratic chain of command. Bureaucratic structures and standard operating procedures were major factors in the development of the bomb, but within that organizational framework, not all bureaucrats were created equal. Davidson and Lytle urge historians to be alert to decisions shaped by politics within government institutions. A person’s official position in an organization does not alone indicate his or her actual influence.
One of the flaws that the opposition notices is that in way shield laws afford extra privileges to journalists and that no citizen should be able to ignore a court ordered subpoena. Simply put, journalist would be placed above the law. Justice Department Official John Ashcroft stated that “reporters today are driven by their editors to deliver tersely written “scoops” usually whispered to them by individuals with political or self-serving agendas who refuse to be identified” and that they “should ultimately be held accountable for acting recklessly and irresponsibly. Allowing journalist this privilege would only further allow them you be able to utilize non-credible sources. Opponents also cite problems with defining who is considered a journalist or news gatherer and who is not.
the guy with the newspaper is shocked to see the news about his children in TV and he appeals to ethos by drawing viewer’s attention towards NSA’s work. His targeted audience are the US citizens, people like us. Varvel uses Aristotle’s all three appeals, images and texts to show the citizens how NSA working against global terrorism and for protection of people has now become a threat to us and our privacy. “I think it’s important to understand that you can’t have 100 percent security and then have 100 percent privacy and zero inconvenience.

After I formed a rough draft my thesis I went to the library for book sources and online for web, newspaper and journal sources. I read and looked through my sources while writing down useful information and good support for my paper. My example I am using from the Huffington Post is a Dick Cheney article that is about an interview with the former Vice President in which he defends the interrogation methods such as water boarding used on alleged terrorist.
Using these advertisements CNN was trying to make you think that they care about decreasing violence with their own ad, and with this article, but they also had an ad for martial arts which I could see as being in support of gun control but it still is kind of promoting violence. You do not see too many people who are very in to martial arts and things like that but do not support the second amendment.

Tragedy & Fare Based on James Madison’s quote, “A popular Government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to Farce or a Tragedy or perhaps both,” authors John Nichols and Robert W. McChesney follow this principle throughout their book, Tragedy & Farce.

The author’s point of view is first person as he narrates the entire book. He uses quotes from interview segments from multiple sources including controversial congressmen and television anchors. The author’s thesis is the revival of democracy-sustaining journalism made up of three components.
