School Officials Bully Student into Deleting Recording of Bullying, Threaten him with Felony Wiretapping A high school sophomore in Pennsylvania who had been bullied all year by classmates with no help from his teacher decided to audio record the bullying on his iPad as evidence. But instead of disciplining the bullies, school officials called police on him, threatening to have him arrested for felony wiretapping. By the time the cops arrived at South Fayette High School in McDonald, school administrators had already forced the 15-year-old boy to delete the audio clip. So police charged him with disorderly conduct instead, a charge he was convicted of last month. Meanwhile, the bullies and the teacher who allowed the bullying – not to mention the administrators who intimidated him into deleting the audio – have yet to be disciplined. Here’s hoping karma catches up to all of them, including Judge Maureen McGraw-Desmet, who convicted the child because, she said, he went to the “extreme” of recording the bullying rather than “let the school handle it.” According to Ben Swann: Like this:

The New Media Movement Is Here: 20 News Sites Kicking Our Generation Into Action At the height of the 2012 presidential election season, Gallup reported that “Americans' distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.” As disappointing as the numbers are, they're not much of a surprise to Americans such as yourself, who have already sought out alternatives to mainstream news sources.

— Stop Imperialism - Geopolitical Analysis Symbolia “Neuroscientific research supports what narrative nonfiction storytellers instinctively know: Stories with clear, emotionally evocative dramatic arcs are most effective at keeping readers engaged. These stories cause the body to produce chemicals including cortisol, which focuses attention, as well as oxytocin, which is associated with empathy. They also light up areas of the brain linked to understanding others.” — Erin Polgreen wrote an essay for Nieman Reports on the power of comics and non-fiction narratives.
