Colton Duncan arrested for DWI and possession of drugs

This is a great example of breaking news. The University star got a lot of traction to their page because of this. A girl in my class was actually the one who found out the information and broke the story. It also sparked a lot of conversation on twitter. I can’t wait until the University responds.

Rep. Maxine Waters claps back at Bill O’Reilly after hair insult

Rep. Maxine Waters claps back at Bill O’Reilly after hair insult

Bill O’Reilly decided to comment on Representative Maxine Water’s hairstyle yesterday and people are not having it. O’Reilly said he could not concentrate on what she was saying because of her “James Brown wig.”  Representative Waters was discussing her disgust with the current presidency and how she will do her job to resist. After the comments, Representative Waters took to twitter and said ” I am a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated, and I’m not going anywhere. .” Hundreds of celebrities and black women have defended Representative Waters and commended her actions.

I like this article because it lays out everything that happens. You don’t have to go to any other source to see what happened. They have the clip and twitter comments all in one place.

The DMV is currently going through what some suspect is a human trafficking nightmare. Dozens of girls have gone missing, the police aren’t actively looking for them and they are being reported as runaways. This story is really hard to do because many news outlets are not covering it. Most information people are gaining is from social media or community sparked town halls.
