It is a year since protesting broke out in Bahrain and Mr. Lustig questions these two men about any changes that have taken place in the country since then. In the interview he is very aggressive.

Listening to Morning News 2/14/12

Valentine’s Day February 14th, 2012 Listening to four different radio stations for the same time on the same day showed how different all the content and feel there can be in various newscasts. Below is an analysis of the four stations and what their morning programs are like.   NPR Morning Edition was mostly 4 min pieces that used several different corespondents with a package for each piece. The ambient sound was quiet and there was little to no extra sound in the wraps. The news ranged from national to international mostly how it affected the U.S., politics to health. A post on the news program about the rate of voter registration is posted below.   BBC was a lot of international news and the host of the show did an interview himself during the program. He seemed to be much more aggressive than the hosts on NPR questioning his guests on the middle east. They also did an American story about how it is the one of the wealthiest countries in the world with the fastest growing poverty rate. 1010WINS is a local news radio station giving us local news and traffic and weather. The newscast doesn’t have longer segments like BBC or NPR. They do news pieces quickly, in about 30 seconds or so. The newscasters speak fast, and the feel is more fun, less serious, more relaxed. There is always noise in the background and a the traffic and weather are at the same time every 10 minutes. There are not any live segments and there are not any guests in the studio. WFAN is a sports talk radio show. Boomer and Carton are hosts in the morning. Sports is the main topic but they do add in other various pieces of news throughout their broadcast. The two hosts also play more off of each other. They interact and joke with each other as well as with their producers and in studio guests that appear frequently. The show is also heavily reliant on listeners that call in and ask questions or comment on the sports headlines. Dead...

Times Square: A Description

Smells of roasted peanuts waft through the air on the corner of a busy intersection.  Drums beat in the distance.  Buildings loom overhead.  Pedestrians buzz with excitement.  Cabs race by skimming their fingertips.  They screech to a halt for potential passengers.  Just to the right a man barks “Next show in five minutes.”  He shuffles off the curb passing a place van flashing red and white lights.  The traffic light turns green.  Tourists zig zag in between each other.  They dodge in between cars making their way across to the oasis of sidewalk forty feet away.  Horns honk.  Girls giggle.  They scurry to the other side making it safely.  The light turns...
