Media Project Part 3: I Have Killed.

I have killed, and I have been killed. I have led countless lives over countless battlefields. I have fought on the beaches of Normandy, in the far reaches of space, across the Russian steppe and on US soil. I have commanded Paratroopers assaulting German SS positions on the Cotentin peninsular, led valiant Space Marines in … Continue reading

The Great Debate.

What you’ll find below is athe closing argument that I wrote for a debate held in my media Law and Ethics class from my TAFE Media and Communications Diploma.  My team and I were given the unenviable position of arguing against the Convergance Report on Media Ownership.  It wasn’t a particularly appetising argument, but we did pretty … Continue reading

Having thought about the overall theme/subject for the Project and it’s required cross cultural component I’ve settled on a series of articles based mostly around the ADF and it’s current deployment to Afghanistan. The four stories … Continue reading

The Oscar Pistorius Interview.

No I didn’t actually interview him. The goal of the excersise was to come up with 10 questions to ask him in a ficticious news conference. These are my rather lacklustre ideas. 1. Can you explain police repeatedly referring to “previous domestic incidents” at your house prior to the death of Reeva Steenkamp? 2. You … Continue reading

Antoni Bell – The Q and A.

I was meant to keep this to 100 words, but the answers were far better in the whole, so I left them as such. Enjoy! Name? –  Antoni Bell DoB? –  28th of July 1992 Where were you born? – The Royal Hospital for Women, Paddington, Sydney, NSW, Australia. The hospital at Paddington no longer … Continue reading
