Elena Borstein is a former professor at CUNY York College in Jamiaca, Queens. After 18 years she came back to show her love for architecture and art in our schools gallery. The Exhibit is titled “Gift of Art”, there is around 15-20 paintings inside the exhibit. All the pieces of art were made by Borstein and donated by her for the exhibit.

Many of the paintings are from Elena Borstein’s personal experience traveling to different cities. While looking at the exhibit I liked it but felt it was missing something. All the paintings were placed nicely but they could have had plaques to explain when the painting was published and a little background on the picture.

At the exhibit I got a chance to speak to Shimon Friedman, Junior at York College, about the artwork. When asked about how he felt about the exhibit Friedman said, “I don’t really see enough art, but I like it. I should came see more art here.”

Friedman, Aviation Management major and Journalism minor, also said I only recently started having an appreciation for art. I would defenitly come to the next exhibit.”

A story that interest me in the news within the last week is the Jussie Smollett story. According to new reports Jussie Smollett faked the entire attack and is now having charges pressed against him. Earlier this month Jussie Smollet was walking in Chicago and was supposedly attacked by MAGA supporters. They said anti-gay and racial slurs.

According to a recent New York Times article, Chicago PD believe that Smollet’s attack was a hoax. Two brothers who were extras on Smollet’s show “Empire” was arrested for the attack but were later released without any charges pressed against them.

The brothers have claimed and told investigators that Smollet paid them to help fake the attack. Jussie Smollet has yet to come forward to confirm or deny the allegations being made, but his lawyers let out a statement. His lawyers denied the claims he was involved and has even got a response from President Trump on twitter.

The Journalism Market. Is Journalism dying?

Recently I read about four or five articles about journalism. Some of them had similarities and some of them had differences. Each article showed journalism from a different perspective. The New York Times article “Does Journalism Have A Future?” discusses the future and the future of newspapers. Early daily newspapers were made to persuade readers […]

Recently I read about four or five articles about journalism. Some of them had similarities and some of them had differences. Each article showed journalism from a different perspective.

The New York Times article “Does Journalism Have A Future?” discusses the future and the future of newspapers. Early daily newspapers were made to persuade readers and were made for voters and the voter turnout was high. In the article, it states “But by 1900 advertising made up more than two-thirds of the revenue at most of the nation’s eighteen thousand newspapers, and readers were consumers (and voter turnout began its long fall). ” People were beginning to read newspapers and the readers were not voters.

In recent years newspapers and news sources are becoming free. People and readers want good reporting and news but they do not want to pay for it. The Journalism field is getting more and more scarce.

The second article is also a New York Times article was titled ” Jill Abramson’s Book Charts Journalism’s Stormy Seas, With Some Personal Regrets and Score-Settling”. It also correlates with another article by the Guardian called “Jill Abramson: ‘The bleak part of the picture is the death of the local papers’.”

Jill Abramson worked for The New York Times. She became an executive editor in 2011. In 2014, she was fired by the paper’s publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr. Abramson wanted to protect the newsroom from “crass commercialism.” She began to write a book and was going to tell her truths.

After Abramson was fired the work area was improved for women that worked at The New York Times. Abramson feels that the worst is not over yet dealing with newspapers. Print newspapers are in a freefall. Many feel people would stop reading big newspapers like The New York Times and The Post because they may get bored with Donald Trump. Abramson feels otherwise because they do not report every little thing he does only the important things.

In the article “The News is Dying, But Journalism Will Not”:How The Media Can Prevent 2020 From Becoming 2016″ it discusses the upcoming election for 2020. People are wondering if the press can deliver more news and not scandalous clickbait.

Journalists is starting to deliver and publish articles or information that is not newsworthy. With all the scandal and unworthy news, newspapers are losing credibility and it is taking a big downfall.
