Preforming at Coachella this year, which is a world famous music festival, Beyonce perfumed and brought fierceness. She appealed to the crowed of African American crown that attended. Not only does she have a very big impact while preforming, her impact off of the stage is stronger. Beyonce was the first woman of color to preform at Coachella. Her performance included an HBCU themed marching band and dancers. Having this type of performance at a mainly white culture centered event is special is what makes Beyonce stand out. The media is calling Coachella “Beychella” because of Beyonce’s performance.
This article gave Beyonce the stereotype of a strong black woman. The article made her performance a race issue by clearly stating Beyonce’s race and her outreach to the African American crowd. This CNN article used statements such as, “celebrating black womanhood and reminding us just how amazing we are.” These type of statements are obviously supposed to relate things to the black community; especially the black female community. The picture above that was used in the article also depicts Beyonce as a strong black woman. She is shown sassily flipping her hair back in the wind. This gesture is a sign of confidence. Her gaze is set and her face is in a fierce stare. She is confidently showing off her legs by wearing short shorts. She is shown to look cool, calm and collected.

This article was all about how the famous music festival, Coachella has hundreds of women attending and they all are dressed similarly. Styles are inspired by fringe, cut offs, embroidery, metallic bindi tattoos, neon, and anything vintage. Any girl you see at Coachella will be wearing something under one of those categories. Clothing companies will intentionally make all of their clothes look relatively similar because they know that this is what sells.
This article was prevalent with stereotypes, such as the carefree white girl, and seductive teenage girl. most girls who were pictured in this article were white girls. They all look trendy, happy and smiling. They look like they are living luxurious lives. All of the girls pictured are wearing revealing clothing. All of the girls are very skinny with perfect skin, teeth, and hair. Girls are shown wearing trendy crop tops, revealing cleavage, showing off their legs, and basically showing as much skin as possible. None of the girls look uncomfortable, they look to be confident in their skimpy clothes.
There is an article by CNN using an interview Ivana Trump made with Page Six where she explained why she didn’t think her ex-husband should run for re-election. Her reasons were that he was going to be pretty old. He’s going to be 74, 75 next election year and she recommended that he spend the remainder of his life chilling out and playing golf. She tells the press that her and the president talk monthly and she believes he misses his freedom. Donald Trump and Ivana Trump were married for fifteen years and had three children together.
This article shows an evident stereotype of women not being as important as males for plenty of reasons. pictured above is a screenshot of the picture that was included with the article. Ivana isn’t even pictured.. in an article about her. Trump is pictured powerfully speaking to a crowd of people with an enormous American flag behind him. Since the article is all about Ivana, you’d assume she would have a picture displayed on the article too. There is also more recognition for Trump than Ivana throughout the article. Ivana Trump is only addressed as “Ivana” for the majority of the article, whereas, Donald Trump is recognized with his first name, last name, as well as “the president.”
On March 16, 2018 CNN posted a story regarding the response that Rihanna had to a recent Snapchat mobile game of “Would you rather?” The question that appeared on the game was “Would you rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown?”. After being abused by her former boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna’s response to this was “Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!” the performer wrote. “I’d love to call it ignorance but I know you ain’t that dumb. You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it.” Due to these comments made by Rihanna Snapchat has experienced a 4% decrease in their stocks resulting in a $800 million decrease from its market value.

Snapchat later released a statement stating that the question presented in the game was “disgusting” and that they are unsure how that could have been published.”We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again,” the company said. The article went on to speak about the complaint that Kylie Jenner made about Snapchat as well, which also resulted in a 6% decrease. Women in the media are becoming more and more influential thus diminishing the idea that women are a minor factor when it comes to media influence. Due to these comments made by these two women Snapchat has unfortunately laid off 120 engineers. Instead of portraying these women as victims or “naggers” CNN instead showed the impact of their statements.
There are no words or actions that can help the countless victims that were either assaulted, abuse or harm by former medical doctor and Olympic gymnastics coach Larry Nasser. Many people have came forward to tell their compelling stories and describe the pain they experienced physically and mentally. Sources say he abuse the most over 150 people including a few men as well. Nasser will currently be serving a 60 year sentence along with additional time added on for the charges and counts of sexual mis conduct as well as child pornography. Although justice is being served regarding him many people do not agree with this and are not satisfied by the decision that was made. Especially two-time Olympic gold-medalist Aly Raisman. Just this past Wednesday she filed a lawsuit to sue USA Gymnastics as well as the US Olympic committee. She contents that both organizations were fully aware about Nasser’s sexual misconduct with many young girls. She is a victim to this because she indeed was molested and sexually abused by Mr. Larry Nasser on several different occasions including the 2012 London Olympics. Now Raisman is taking matters into her own hands by addressing the lack of laws, policies ,and procedures that were not executed by the USOC and USAG. She stated “My highest priority has been to push for change, so future generations of athletes will be safer.” Which is accurate athletes shouldn’t have to experience this type of scenario, no one for that matter especially from a coach that you would believe to put your trust into to train you and push to excel you to be the best athlete . The actions Raisman is taking is the right one and is putting a stop to the broken system that the USOC and USAG have. Her attorney also made statements claiming “Instead they conspired to hide their knowledge of Nassar’s horrible crimes from the public and attempted to frighten Ms. Raisman and other victims into keeping quiet”. If this has any truth to it both organizations are soon going to be drowning in hot water. To agree or to allow this to happen is sickening and justice does need to be served and carried out on stronger appeal not only for Aly Raisman but to the other countless athletes and people who were abused by Nasser.

USA Today News
Sponsor Julie Raque Adams, A Louisville Republican is trying to pass a bill to raise the legal age of marriage in Kentucky to 18 years old. The concern about the rights of parents to allow children to wed at a younger age, stalled the bill. The bill was pulled off the agenda just hours before a scheduled vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee for the second time in two weeks.
The writer of the article titled the article “Kentucky’s ‘child bride’ bill stalls as groups fight to let 13-year-olds wed”. The writer calls the bill a “child bride” bill which shows the readers that they’re biased. The writer clearly thinks that marriage under the age of 18 is too young. The writer is insinuating that being under the age of 18 means you are still a child. The writer also used a picture of a woman that was married at the age of 16 to a 29-year-old man and included that she is behind the bill to show that under aged married is indeed a bad idea. The fact that she is behind the bill indicates that her marriage was a mistake. This will influence the readers to think that the bill is a good idea. They will see that marriage under the age of 18 should be permitted. People will see the bill as a good thing.
