I I read an article based on Charlo Greene’s resignation from her job as a news reporter in Alaska. She is the owner of the Alaskan Cannibis Club which is a group of advocates supporting the recreational use of marijuana justified by the rights of freedom and equality in the United States. As Greene reported about a ballot measure for the decriminalization of marijuana in Alaska, she made an exit from her job that will never be forgotten. “[I] will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska, And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice, but f––– it, I quit,” and then she walked off the set.
I found this article on the People Magazine website. I think it was successful because it was simple, a good length, straight-forward and detailed. It included dialogue, links, even footage of the newscast in which Greene quit. The next step for People Magazine would be to do a follow up story on Greene. Below the article, People Magazine already has a link asking viewers to sign up for more stories related to this article. And below this link is a bunch of links to other article published on the site.
I thought Greene’s actions were extremely brave. I commend her efforts for fighting for what she believes in however, I hope she has a back up plan as far as finances because finding a job in the journalism field may not be possible after this occurrence. Her reputation as a credible reporter is ruined because she left her job to advocate what is currently illegal and disapproved of in Alaska.
