    This is a very interesting story becuase it hightlights the two sides to every story principle through the media. It shows the way media and technology can have different effects, and in using social media people or organizaitons can argue their side of the story with very little realization from the public of what they are actually doing. This can be dangerous in a sense, becuase any action can be excused away with the light shone on the incident in just the right way.

    Popular culture is constantly changing, and in order for the government to continue to do what they want to do, they must convince the American public it is what they want the government to do. On the other side of that, social media can also be used as a way to check the government to make sure that they are not going to out of bounds with with policies and actions. Fewer things get past people in the digital age, and it is a good utilizaiton of what resources we have to make sure we are being represented the way we want to.
