    • Addie, I thought you did a good job of previewing and summarizing your research. I also think the picture you used is very representative of the content of this article, the “backwards” flag representing America’s warped media.

    • Maybe the way we consume media has changed the goals of large media players. With the decline in newspapers, TV news fills the void. However, TV, unlike most newspaper, is mainly a form of entertainment. So only the big stories, terrorism, big policies, get covered, with dramatic effect.

    • This is such a great topic, especially as we see how relevant it is today. Great job summarizing your paper, and I cant wait to read more on this!

    • Thanks for writing this. Your title intrigued me.

      Isn’t it true that all of our families come from immigrants, unless perhaps we are Native Americans or other indigenous people?

      I think that people say “we are all immigrants” because the vast majority of our families came from somewhere else, and yet it seems so easy to forget that. It is easy to think that the doors to our country should be closed even though they were open for our families. We lack empathy, I think.

      I agree strongly that “We need to take action because immigrants cannot. We have the privilege and we must do something good with it or it will ruin us.”

      I look forward to seeing you write more and to hearing what actions you suggest to be more inclusive to immigrants and all those that are seen as “outsiders” or “other.” Thanks for writing!
