We love the doubters
When I hear the word media I automatically think of paparazzi and propaganda. But in reality there are so many different forms of media that most of us don’t even think about. To me media means connecting with other people through either the radio, newspaper, the internet or even TV. In today’s society we have an abundance of different types of media to suit almost everyone’s style. Take me and my friends for instance. We mostly love sports and talk about sports so the media that appeals to us would be things like espn on TV, bleacher report app on your phone and even sports talk radio shows in the morning. With technology advancing every single year I no longer just ordered sports illustrated magazines from my middle school. I now just pull it up on my phone which is much easier and a lot quicker than waiting around each month for my one magazine to come in the mail. To me media and being media literate are two completely different things. Media is just what we call reporters and interviews that update us on things that interest us our even things that are important. I am not 100 percent sure what it means to be media literate, but because this is a language arts class you must be able to understand and analyze different forms of media. That can be anything from radio, Internet, newspapers, etc.… So I assume we will be learning all the skills that are necessary for us to be media literate.

I been Steph Curry with the shot
In today’s society we people are always seeing articles on twitter and other social media networks and find them interesting. Many of those articles are written by amateur journalists who are just trying to stir up internet with false accusations that hurt the credibility of those who are involved. I was on twitter the other day and as a major sports fan those are the articles that attract me. I came across one about Steph Curry. I am sure there is no need for an introduction considering he is the hottest NBA and most talked about professional athlete at the time. He is so popular that many athletic brands such as Nike, Adidas and under armor where all looking to sign him to a deal. Steph like many other athletes are Christians and like to write bible verses on somewhere on their uniform. Steph likes to write them on his shoes. According to the article Nike was the top contender and things were going well until Nike supposedly wanted him to stop writing the bible verses on his shoes. Steph Curry refused to sign a contract with Nike because the shoe company wouldn't allow him to put Bible verses on his sneakers. I thought this was ridiculous because Nike had a contract with Tim Tebow who was well known for righting John 3:16 on his eye black. I checked with snopes.com and it turns out there was some truth to the story but mostly all lies. Steph signed his sneaker deal with Under Armor which is huge for them for a company who doesn’t get big athletes like Steph. This got me thinking one of my friends is always trying to tell me about an article that he read and it will always be the most absorbed thing and he would believe it. It would always blow my mind with the information that he would throw at me because there is no way it could be true. I for one like to make sure my information is coming from a credible source because I feel that it is imperative to talk about correct information and not spreading lies and damaging others credibly.
Steph curry with the shot boy
Steph Curry is the defending NBA champion and MVP winner he is a 3 point champion.
Nike wanted to sponsor Steph Curry because he is the hottest most popular player in the NBA right now, and that is more money for them.
Sources say that Steph didn't sign with Nike because of an argument over the bible and religious views.

1984 Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden is an American computer professional, former Central Intelligence Agency employee, and former contractor for the US Government who liked classified information to the public. Snowden was working for the NSA at the time and as everyone knows the NSA does surveillance to help protect our country from terroristic threats. Most people are okay with this however Snowden found out that the NSA was going to extreme measures and leaked this information. Snowden is a lot like Winston from 1984. Both Winston and Snowden believe that what their governments are doing are wrong and both were willing to go thru almost anything necessary to take down the government. To many both of these men would be considered heroes or even traders to their government. They are also different because Winston is willing to die for the cause but Snowden is not willing to die or get tortured so he fled to Russia where he could not be extradited back to the United States. Now Snowden will most likely live out the rest of his days in Russia which isn’t the most ideal thing in the world. O’Brien and Snowden are alike except that O’Brien is thought police. You can tell he is because it’s too obvious, everything with him is too perfect in my eyes. You really think that you can just turn off the telescreen? If O’Brien was truly against the government and Big Brother I would say him and Snowden would have virtually been the same person. However he isn’t there for Winston and Snowden are the most alike.
1984 Chapter : Room 101
Winston is now headed to room 101, the one place no one wants to go. We already know that room 101 is the place with your biggest fear. For example in waiting in room 101 for me would be a bunch of big nasty snakes. However for Winston his biggest fear is rats. So he will be tortured by rats which would be an absolute horrific punishment for anyone, but extremely horrible for him because of how afraid he is of them. While Winston is in room 101 I believe that he will break. I believe that Winston will learn to truly love Big Brother and the Party and not just say it, but actually truly mean it. But in order to do that he must first betray Julia by saying he doesn’t love her anymore because when you’re a loyal party member you only live one thing… Big Brother. After he is done with room 101 he will live for a little bit and then eventually they will bring him back to the ministry of love and will be killed, thus making Winston a victim to the party. He is a victim just like everyone else because he was brain washed into loving Big Brother just like everyone else who enters the ministry of love. When it comes to O’Brien he is a villain for the government. He just does what he has to do to stay in power much like most people in his position would do. He is a villain and a weapon because he is able to get people like Winston trust and make them believe that there a thing called the brother hood and is then able to write a fake book too. All just to arrest them and torture them until they love big brother and the party.
