This show may be one f the best examples of the dumbing down of the American TV Viewers. While I admit I watched a few seasons in my past I don’t see the appeal of the show or why it is so captivating. I am convinced unlike my cousin Jill (Whom is addicted) that the show is somewhat if not completely scripted. Many fans agree that it is but enjoy it anyway. I am a realist or a Vulcan as Jill’s father calls me. I need to be truthful and just. It is just the person I must be. So admit that the show is written for a “studio audience” and I will watch it. After all I live in a studio apartment. The show is on its 29th season this feat is unheard of in telivision history. I as a TV Buff have NEVER heard of a show running so long. Perhaps there is credence to this clear water survivor format. Then again it could be just what our American public has chosen to be addicted to for so many years. It has taken CBS and made it the most viewed network according to the nelson polls. P.S. I have NEVER met anyone with a nelson box or polling deice in their homes so whom is the poll really graphing.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
