Meet Our Wednesday Visitor. Your Assignment is to Post Questions for Her in Comment Section

Meet Nanette Asimov.

Stories she suggests we look at.

Here are a few story options that could inspire discussion about how we cover stuff:

UC Berkeley worker says professor sexually assaulted, then fired her (good for discussion of fair coverage / and what’s a nut graf)

Videos show officer tackling seated man, waving gun in Vallejo (non-education story – wahoo! – good not only for fairness, but what happens when one side doesn’t call you back? and where’s the nut graf)

Outrage over dean altering story in Santa Clara campus paper (How to cover news and be fearless at a private university… and where’s the nut graf)
