Assignment: Write the news story that would go along with someone else’s photo from yesterday’s TDC: Yesterday’s TDC was to “Create a visual that might accompany one of the mashed up headlines from @twoheadlines” — choose one photo (not one you created!) and write an interesting news story to go with the headline. Be sure to provide a link to both the tweet and the image (maybe it will come in handy later this week?)
I chose this photo because I knew I could make it short and sweet… 🙂
Here is my article:
Oakland Raiders Welcomes Baby Girl
The Oakland Raiders wish to announce with lots of love the arrival of their little angel, Betty Johnson, born on 6th December 2013. She weighed 5 pounds, 2 ounces and was 14 inches long.
When asked to comment on the birth, defensive coordinator Jason Tarver made an obscene gesture accompanied with an expletive.
When clarification of his comment was requested, Tarver said “I apologize for my action following the birth of Betty. It was in the heat of the moment, and I regret drawing attention away from her birth and what our baby mama accomplished.”
