‘Thursday night Gatepost confessions’ video

Check out Confessions of a Student Newspaper Editor’s first video “Thursday night Gatepost confessions.”  It’s a spinoff of YouTuber hayleighcolombo‘s video “Shit Student Journalists Say” posted in January 2012.  My video captures a small portion of the insanity that exists in The Gatepost office on Thursday nights, when our staff copy edits articles and lays out each section’s pages in order for a published issue to be available to the Framingham State University community the following morning.

Gatepost News Editor Kathleen McDonough and Associate Editor and Editor-in-Chief-elect for the 2013-2014 academic year Kerrin Murray talk “Newsie Speak” in the news section, which is still decorated for McDonough’s birthday, which was a week before this video was made.  In the end, they decide to blame all of their newspaper-related problems and worries on The Gatepost‘s current Editor-in-Chief Spencer Buell.

I’d like to give a huge shoutout and thank you to my Writing for Online and Social Media class’ Professor (and Assistant Advisor to The Gatepost) Meredith O’Brien-Weiss for all of her help with this video!  I was having some serious technical difficulties, but she figured it out!  Thank you Meredith!  And of course a big thank you goes out to Kathleen, Kerrin and Spencer.

Here’s the video:
