Do you think your classmate accurately identified the claims? Explain your answers. Yes. I feel my classmate accurately identified the claim. NBC TV maintains that there are villages of illegal workers living behind (2) million dollar homes in northern San Diego County. The report also went on to state that the area behind the homes have trash everywhere. There are reports of drinking, prostitution, drug use and smuggling.
Your classmate has compared the claims against his or her personal observations; how do the claims agree or conflict with your own personal observations? Bruces’ reiteration of the story was precise. However in my opinion my classmate’s observation must possess more concrete facts or at least a variety of facts from different sources. Try to pull up a couple more stories written by different reporters before stating the claim is true.
How are the observation made by you and your classmate the same or different? My classmate and I agree on the claim however I need a little more background information before I am willing to accept this claim.

They were not helped they were just homeless somewhere else.
Do you feel your classmate made an accurate judgment about the author’s bias or trustworthiness? Explain your answer. No.
I feel that news reporters should be bias and trustworthy. However...
