Journalism 133: Prof. Craig: Bad Writing Assignment

Bad Writing Assignment

Today's assignment: Go to your assigned news outlet (see below) and find an example of what you think is poor writing.  The example doesn't have to be new -- you can use anything available on the site in question, as long as it's 500 words or more.  

You don't need to write anything up -- just be prepared to show your example to the group next time and discuss why you think the writing is bad.
