    I believe I mentioned that the American English language was different from the English language in other countries. Especially the British version of English grammar. As stated below:

    http://www.onestopenglish.com/gramma...152820.article

    http://esl.fis.edu/grammar/easy/aebe.htm

    It just shows a few details on grammar and how it differs between American English versus British English. We all know a few words are spelled differently. But it's more than that.

    In America in particular, there is am emphasis on New Journalism, as I previously mentioned.

    You can read more about it I'm sure.

    It is explained that New Journalism, according to today's version of it all, is defined as: "journalism containing the writer's personal opinions and reactions" Places which define it often go on to say that several things are shorthand, or written in different ways. So if a person speaks a certain way, they go by how they speak, a "colloquial style" style if you will. For example, Tom Sawyer would speak in a southern way and as a result, Mark Twain wrote in this fashion for Tom. Colloquial has picked up a lot in media these days because of it being an easier style for people to understand. Writing how one speaks rather than writing in a poetic tone is far more "user friendly". Another word you'd hear or see now and not in the 1960's for example.

    The key is to know that it can work in several ways. Whether it's via Social Media, Video, or article form. All 3 can come off the exact same way, and not in three distinctive tone with New Journalistic Media.

    I'm not doing the research for your argument for you. What kind of journalist says you can probably read more about it. That's horseshit!

    and as I said the first time you pulled this trite excuse out, New Journalism is a relaxed form, not ignoring grammar because it's "Too hard" Every time you claim your attachment to that movement, it reminds me of someone dropping all of his paints and calling the resulting mess "abstract art" It cheapens the entire genre to allow such an obvious amateur to use a legitimate term so incorrectly as a way to hide his shortcomings as a writer. Hell, there are Rednecks down here in Katy Texas that have more love for the language than you, but that's really the jumping off point this morning

    Your second failing, of course is that you didn't pay attention in geography either, (odd thing for someone who wants to learn sociology, which of course isn't actual medicine, but that's too advanced an argument for you right now, so I'll leave it) If you had, then your quasi-racist crap about all those mexicans may have been better informed, perhaps when you learned and read about all those Mexicans living in the south back when it was called.... Mexico! But of course, much like your simplistic view of the industry that keeps us all entertained, you did not stop to think before typing.

    Then you claim that it must be your "vaunted" position we're after, that must be why we hate you right? Not because you can't write for shit, or because you have all the vocabulary of an 11 year old, just because you are a columnist, right? Well, simple question then, where is our thread where we talk about the other guy? That's right, he's doing a fine job.

    TL; DR - Copy and Paste from an english board doesn't make you correct, it just proves you have no idea what the hell you are babbling about.


    Say my name and his in the same breath, I dare you to say they taste they same.

    At least quote what you copy and paste, my God man have you no morals?

    According to the Merriam Dictionary:

    Definition of NEW JOURNALISM

    : journalism that features the author's subjective responses to people and events and that often includes fictional techniques meant to illuminate and dramatize those responses
    New Journalist noun

    First Known Use of NEW JOURNALISM

    1967

    This does not mean make a blog by butchering the English language, (whether American or European style), nor does it mean to have a ton of grammatical errors, and if your using spellchecker then it's time to update your definitions and spelling of the words. 1960's and 1970's style writing is way out of date. Times change and so does interpretation of events, meanings of slang, and in order to be deemed a good writer one must captivate their audience and get them to think.

    All you've been able to accomplish so far since you've been here is make a lot of people want to leave the site, (including me), troll people, and tarnish what was once a very honed reputation of this site. I have no idea what Frank was thinking bringing you on like he did, maybe he was drunk, but for whatever reason he did it does not seem to be working out. If your "columns" were to be placed in the blog section where they belong nobody would be as critical of "your opinion" which is what a blog really is.
