For News Gathering and Writing, I wrote a news article about the recent health inspections of local restaurants. I received the health inspections by filing an open records request through the city, and I conducted an interview with the lowest scoring restaurant's owner. This is the first news article I had ever written. The article was published through multiple news outlets. First, it was published through the student news outlet, Texan News Service, on the front page, below the fold, on their newspaper. Next, it was published by the Stephenville Empire-Tribune on the front page, above the fold. Finally, it was shared by both of them as well as The Flash Today online and on social media. The article was shared on Facebook over a thousand times, and the website traffic on the Texan News Service's website was so great it caused the site to crash for a week.
