I’m Cassandra Martinez and I am a freshman Broadcast Journalism major at Emerson College in Boston, MA. This blog was set up as a mandatory assignment for my Intro to Journalism class with Professor Karla Vallance. Part of this blog is keeping up with a local journalist of our choice, along with other local and national news sources.
A little about me is that I’m originally from McAllen, TX – which is located in the extreme South of the state and only a few cities away from the Mexican border. My favorite type of journalism has to be satire/parody, along the lines of shows like The Onion, Infomania on CurrentTV and the Daily Show. In my opinion, in order to be able to truly make someone laugh intelligently about the news, you must at first be completely coherant and knowledgeable about the profession of journalism.
