All The President’s Men In all fairness aside, no other film combines the elements of investigative journalism and Washington politics more compellingly than “All the President’s Men.” It entails the story of two reporters working for the Washington Post who alleviated the fall of President Nixon, therefore adapting the way both politics and journalism is now viewed. On the surface, it's a great story about journalist’s, and for many, it shows the successful portrayal of a how a journalist goes about his or her day. It is certainly not the easiest of stories to fully comprehend, as it took some time and effort to understand the story fully. However, by making the film personal, the narrative driven by the fire of its lead characters,
He is a newspaper publisher who owns politicians. Taylor is a classic portrayal of modern day evil. He works from behind the scenes to control things, and shape things to his liking. Taylor has no qualms about destroying Smiths reputation, or his life, for his own personal gain. Taylor is a man with seemingly unlimited power to control the very minds of people.
Things have to make sense in my own mind before I make a decision. Keirsey also states, “In their careers, Masterminds usually rise to positions of responsibility, for they work long and hard and are dedicated in their pursuit of goals, sparing neither their own time and effort nor that of their colleagues and employees. Problem-solving is highly stimulating to Masterminds, who love responding to tangled systems that require careful -1- sorting out. Ordinarily, they verbalize the positive and avoid comments of a negative nature; they are more interested in moving an organization forward than dwelling on mistakes of the past.” I agree with
Atwood structures her novel through the flashbacks of the main character, Snowman, who survives a horrific virus created by his best friend Crake. She creates a dystopian future where all economic and political power is held by avaricious corporations, which militaristically monitor their employees. Many of these themes and issues which Atwood explores are based on contemporary themes and issues that are relevant in today’s world. Therefore there’re many significant comparison’s drawn between the items in the futuristic world of Oryx & Crake and in, the contemporary world as we know it. Through skilful characterization and techniques Atwood engages the reader’s mind, resulting in a chilling realisation that is not easily forgotten.

Nicholas Yu Collison AP English Language and Composition 13 October 2013 The Cold Blooded Journalist Our world is rapidly changing, morphing itself to suit the needs of people around the world. Journalism is no exception, as it has metamorphosed through advances in technology and new opinions that many people hold. However, Journalism’s goals remain constant, and throughout the novel In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, Capote attempts to fulfill many of them. Although Capote is not an ideal journalist, Truman functions as an outstanding storyteller, effective aggregator, and imperfect moral leader because he forms strong interpersonal relations with those he finds important to his writing, and because of his frequent use of repetition to
As a United States soldier, I also have be trained that it takes hard work, motivation, and dedication to make your dreams come true. Gen. Powell once said “It takes personal hard work and dedication for you to become all that you can be”. On the base of my belief I find this statement to be so true. I've never depended on anyone and never wanted to. I set goals for myself and inspite of everything I've gone through, I've accomplished them and in some cases exceeded them.

This I feel, is something that any journalist could very easily fall into without the constant pressure of knowing a twin tattle-tale brother is right next to you watching and verifying your every report. A journalist's credibility is one of the most important things they have to keep their career alive and people listening to the news that they release.
