Meeting for communication majors (or other majors who are interested in communication)

    Growing up my parents did not talk about politics that often, at least not in front of me. I would ask them questions about what party they supported and why because I had always been curious. They would tell me which party they supported and why they felt that way but nothing in too much detail. They had always had the same thoughts on politics. They both supported the same party. This past year was the first year I had been eligible to vote. I turned to my parents for advice. This time, they were supporting different parties. They also did not tell me why they supported these parties. Both my mom and my dad thought it was important for me to make my own decision and be educated on why I was choosing one candidate over the other.

    Before the election I went to http://www.johnmccain.com/issues/. I wanted to see where he stood on issues that were important to me. I then went to http://www.barackobama.com/issues/ to compare the two candidates. After I did some reading I went to http://www.cnn.com and watched cnn on Tv also. Now that the election is over I do not pay attention to politics as much as I should. I watch shows like The Daily Show and the Colbert Report. Although I realize this isn’t real news, they still bring up current topics. When I find a topic that intrests me, I go to http://www.cnn.com to gain more information because they update the site constantly and quickly. I also like how it talks about politics around the world. I think it’s important to go straight to the source when it comes to specific politicians. I think it is a good idea to go to their personal websites to get information on their particular views and ideas.
