Welcome to The Newsbriefer, a blog about current events and their implications. My name is Kenneth McNicol and I hope that you will enjoy my analyses. The way The Newsbriefer works is that it looks at current events through news stories, summarizes the stories, analyzes the events, and helps the reader to understand what might come as a result of what’s already happened. Although I have no formal education in this sort of thing outside of years in higher education and a bachelor’s in advertising, I hope I can provide valuable insight. If I had a specialization, however, I would say it’s in perspectives, whether it be of something that’s going on or of the media itself. If you enjoy my content, please tell your friends about this blog. If you have any comments, don’t hesitate to send me one. Be informed, speculate, and see the world more brief-ly.
