    Episode 13: A candid convo with Washington Post reporter Soraya N. McDonald

    in Writing

    This week’s episode features a candid conversation with Washington Post reporter Soraya McDonald. In this interview, you’ll recognize right away the wit that shades much of her prose.  Soraya is a graduate of Howard University and began covering the high school sports desk as an college intern. After traveling across the country completing journalism fellowship, internships, and eventually employment, Soraya returned to the Washington Post where she eventually became a staff reporter.


    I discovered her work last year when I read an article about a female gamer who had received death threats. Soraya had been covering the story for some time, and I wanted her to speak to my article writing class.


    That didn’t happen, but I’m glad this did! I’ll release her bonus material which includes a how-to make the most out of your college experience, a segment particularly helpful for students.


    In this show, you also get the 411 on a new daily humor site, The Reject Pile. Founded by writer Joel Miller, the site wants your unwanted work. Thank goodness somebody finally does!

    City of Ferguson vs Washington Post

    in Politics

    The following is a statement on the incident from Washington Post Executive Editor Martin D. Baron:Wesley has briefed us on what occurred, and there was absolutely no justification for his
    arrest.He was illegally instructed to stop taking video of officers. Then he followed officers’ instructions to leave a McDonald’s — and after contradictory instructions on how to exit, he was slammed against a soda machine and then handcuffed. That behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news. The physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous.

    "Find me any people other than the children of Abraham with any power and presence on the world stage as the promoters, as operators making things happen as visionaries, find me any other people than the children of Abraham in that great role on the world stage you can’t find them.


    Even the Soviets that were communists now they’re going back to religion, Mosque the Muslims flourishing now where there use to be the communist block, churches flourishing now where there use to be the communist block.  China now still holding on to is special brand, special make of communism, it is also relaxing its grip on its people and they are beginning to freely practice their religion again, Muslims, Christians and others Bhuddist and others.
