Tabloid story of Phillip Seymour Hoffman

phillip seymour hoffman

By now you should have researched and written about the death of Hollywood actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

Think about the language you used to describe his death in sensational detail.

Was the story more interesting to write?

How did you feel about exaggerating the facts?

Should the story entertain or be merely factual?

How accountable are newspapers/magazines for exploitative articles.

Given the OJ article as an example we will use Photoshop to manipulate an image of Hoffman to implicate him in a bigger drama.
