Your post on the View from Nowhere

Before class on Monday, please write a 200- to 300-word blog post on the View from Nowhere, which is the phrase Jay Rosen uses to describe a certain type of mindless objectivity. (You should have read two blog posts by him on the subject. They are linked from the syllabus.)

I’d like you to find, link to and write about a story that you believe is a good illustration of the View from Nowhere. Also, do the same with a story that you would say is an example of the View from Somewhere — that is, it is not objective in the View from Nowhere meaning of the term, but it shows that the the reporter worked to get at the truth and tell us something important.
