I really NEED you on this one. Can I get this by midnight tonight? There is a STRICT 800 word count limit on the actual debate. References/Footnotes do not count.
This needs to be re-written and the argument re-focused to make this a great debate. My answer to the question really should be Rolling Stone was wrong to use shock value to sell magazines and cheaply grab attention, but from a journalistic standpoint should be allowed to report the story.
Rewrite: Rolling Stone Debate.doc
The intro and ending do not pack enough punch. The body repeats itself too much. This should be direct yet eloquent and profound. I want every line to grab attention.
Here are some examples of some ideas you can use for the debate:

Please add one of these videos in the debate and PLEASE include the last line of the Breaking The Set video. I think that is powerful.
Breaking The Set: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwSRB3X1aU8
Whichever video you don't add, maybe feature some of the lines said in the debate.
