    I really liked The bulldogs Online news change in Journalism and the Sexy 6’s Vietnam War in a Milestone. I like the Pseudo events from Sexy 6 more than Team Fall’s, they were straight and to the point. It is easy to understand and they had a good example that went with the books definition.

    I think that Team SexySix6 gave a good example of how CNN, Fox News, and USA Today set new norms. Their example showed how many people have changed how they get their news and where they get it from
