Storyboard Text

  • The article I am looking into provided different point of views and quoted several people on the subject of immigrant family separation at the border. All of those who are quoted seem to have reasonable credentials, like Republican Senator Ben Sasse and Representative Will Hurd.
  • The article I used for this assignment was Trump Says He Will Not Let U.S. Become 'Migrant Camp' by Lisa Lambert and Makini Brice on the website Reuters.
  • The website Reuters provides several pages for background information, and explains that it is part of a branch of websites founded by Thomas Reuters.

  • Crazy Trump?
  • The article seems to have been written to inform America about the argument for and against the separation of illegal immigrant families, but early on it becomes clear that the author is directing the reader at Trumps throat rather than at seeing a bigger picture.
  • The title isn't incredibly shocking, as far as titles go, but the editor of this article is obviously hoping to capture a largely not-Trump-friendly audience. The quotes line up, and there seems to be evidence to what the article states, but the words were manipulated.
  • They provide several opinions - in bits and pieces. When quoting Will Hurd, for example, they only use one word, making it seem like he distrusts Trump directly- 'Insane'.
  • Crazy Article?
  • Solved: Real News!
  • The issue the article itself discusses, is equally true! It becomes evident that there have actually been problems with the current law which legalizes separating families who try to cross illegally. 
  • And so, the final conclusion is that this article, is, in fact REAL news! It just becomes evident that the authors are attempting to manipulate the popular opinion through negative connotation.
  • So, the last stage of verifying this articles worth is upon us. The website on which it was found seems to lead on that it is a realistic politics organization. The titles all seem a little crazy in the short-distance, but as of the most recent Summit in Singapore, it all fits into place.
