On Wednesday, September 20th, Ms. Nelson’s journalism class discussed the new Taylor Swift album and the news coverage of natural disasters.

Taylor Swift’s latest album, Reputation will be released on November 10th, 2017, and the journalism class had some interesting opinions to share. We came to the conclusion that her newest single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” sends a bad message to her younger fans. The song targets her beef between other celebrities, specifically Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. All of her recent music has thrown shade or targeted a celebrity. The song Bad Blood, also portrays a poor image to her younger audience by holding a grudge against Katy Perry. Our journalism class thinks that her music leaves the impression on younger kids to not be forgiving. One of our classmates, Tristen Nies, states that he thinks Taylor Swift is a celebrity icon and that we will listen to her music no matter what, making her stay relevant in the media.

On a different issue in the media, we discussed the recent hurricane coverage in the news. We concluded that the media does a poor job sending us critical details. In the media, we are only exposed to the stories of people being rescued, when in reality there is a lot of ugly activity behind the scenes. People break and steal items when disaster strikes. Our class also brought up the fact that the media has not paid much attention to the hurricanes outside of the United States. Hurricane Irma struck the Caribbean islands as a catagory 5 storm, when it only hit Florida as a catagory 3 storm. The damage was much more significant in the islands even though we did not hear much about it.

Our class concluded that Taylor Swift is sending a bad message, and the news is too.
