Gonzo Journalism - Burke Analysis - Arthur Munoz

The paper is an exert from an article written during World War II. This tradition style of journalism will be compared to post Hunter Thompson - with a focus on the Vietnam War. We can see the factual reporting of the process of the weaponry; the diction is very careful as to never have anti-American connotations. It is written very much like the specs of a weapon. I will look at how this journalism style compares to discussion of weapons in Vietnam (still haven't found that article though) also I will look to add an article reporting the dropping the atomic bombs to better deal with any issues someone may have comparing the severity of weapons over time.

  1. I like your paragraph description at the bottom but you have no really analysis in the paper so that could help with your presentation.
