This is an interesting starting point for media analysis, but really needs expansion. And make your opinion very clear at the top of the post the idea is to introduce the topic, state your opinion and then use research/argument/links to back that up.
You have a strong headline but only get to the heart of the matter in the second last par. direct links to the tweets you mention. Did she respond to any of this? Did other people get involved on her behalf?
To make it more about media analysis, you could have explored the notion that anyone can say anything they like on nike tiempo prix Twitter and how this leaves people vulnerable to unwarranted attack.
A few technical issues: You don need more than five tags. I not sure why this is in the media ethics category, as it really doesn cover that issue. Break up pars you are still writing for online so white space will help the reader. Watch for typos/grammar/punctuation. in first par should be It also better to link directly to a tweet when you mention it specifically, rather than the person Twitter page.
n returning to the kitchen to go on with her work, the exhaustion against which Marie had hitherto fought successfully, oakley warden overpowered her the moment she sat down; her heavy head oakley sunglasses fives drooped, her eyes closed in spite of her, and she nike outlet store online fell into a broken, uneasy slumber. Madame Duparc and her nike free sale daughter, seeing the condition she was in, undertook the preparation nike air jordan 1 retro black metallic gold of the day s dinner themselves. Among the dishes which they ray ban rx sunglasses got ready, and which they salted from the cellars on coach outlet printable coupons the dresser, were two different kinds of soup one oakley whiskers kind for themselves, made from fresh stock the other, nike 50 free for Marie and the nurse, made from old stock. They ray ban vintage sunglasses were engaged over their cookery, when Monsieur Duparc arrived from ebay nike free run the country; and Marie was awakened to take the horse brown ray bans he had ridden to the stables, to unsaddle the animal, oakley gift card and to give him his feed of corn. While she coach online outlet factory was thus engaged, Madame Duparc and her daughter remained alone black ray ban sunglasses in the kitchen. When she left the stable, it was nike outlet location time for her to lay the cloth. She was told coach outlit to put plates for seven persons. Only six, however, sat aviator sunglasses ray ban down to dinner. Those six were, Madame De Beaulieu, Monsieur oakley coupons and Madame Duparc, the youngest of their two sons, Madame factory coach outlet online Beauguillot (sister of Madame Duparc), and Monsieur Beauguillot (her son). coach dog carrier Mademoiselle Duparc remained in the kitchen to help Marie in nike mens free trainer 70 serving up the dinner, and only took her place at ray ban nerd glasses table after the soup had been put on. Her elder ray ban new wayfarer polarized brother, after summoning his father home, had not returned to coaching and mentoring the house.
After the soup had been taken away, and while ray ban olympian Marie was waiting at table during the eating of the ray ban sunglasses guarantee second course, young Duparc complained that he felt something gritty popular ray ban sunglasses between his teeth. His mother made precisely the same remark. oakley glasses prescription Nobody else, however, agreed with them, and the subject was coach outlet peddlers village allowed to drop. When the second course was done with, oakley holbrook sunglasses the dessert followed, consisting of a plate of cherries. With ray ban clubmaster sale the dessert there arrived a visitor, Monsieur Fergant, chaussure de football nike junior a relation shop oakley of Madame Duparc s. This gentleman placed himself at table with oakley prescription glasses the rest of the company.
Meanwhile, the nurse and Marie were ray ban prescription sunglasses online making their dinner in the kitchen off the soup which oakley pro deal had been specially provided for them Marie having previously oakley mp3 placed the dirty plates, and the empty soup tureen from the coach outlets locations dining room, in the scullery, as usual, to be washed at oakley sales the proper time. We are all poisoned! cried Madame mens oakley sunglasses Duparc, in the greatest terror. Good heavens! I smell burned nike air max history arsenic in the kitchen!
Monsieur Fergant, the visitor, hearing these last oakley straight jacket polarized words, politely stepped forward to echo them. Burned arsenic, beyond oakley sunglasses on sale a doubt, said Monsieur Fergant. When this gentleman was subsequently coaching jobs questioned on the subject, it may not be amiss to oakley mens sunglasses mention that he was quite unable to say what burned nike free review arsenic smelled like. Neither is it altogether out of place coach factory outlet hours to inquire how Madame Duparc happened to be so amazingly buy ray ban wayfarer apt at discovering the smell of burned arsenic? The answer coach outlet handbags to the question does not seem easy to discover.
Having settled oakley probation polarized that they were all poisoned, and having even found out ray ban rb 3025 (thanks to those two intelligent amateur chemists, Madame Duparc and coach bags clearance Monsieur Fergant) the very nature of the deadly drug that coach sale handbags had been used to destroy them, the next thing the cheap oakley m frame sunglasses company naturally thought of was the necessity of summoning medical nike clothing outlet help. Young Monsieur Beauguillot obligingly ran off (it was apparently coach handbags purses a very mild case of poisoning, so far as he official coach outlet online store was concerned) to the apothecary s shop, and fetched, not the oakley headquarters apprentice this time, but the master. The master, Monsieur Thierry, ray bans aviators cheap arrived in great haste, and found the dinner eaters all complaining coach outlet sale online of nausea and pains in the stomach. He naturally asked oakley aviator what they had eaten. The reply was, that they had eyepatch oakley eaten nothing but soup.
This was, to say the least of oakley outlet store locations it, rather an unaccountable answer. The company had had for nike air max 90 premium dinner, besides soup, a second course of boiled meat, and fake oakleys wholesale ragout of beef, and a dessert of cherries. Why was football coach this plain fact concealed? Why was the apothecary s attention to jackie o ray ban sunglasses be fixed exclusively on the soup? Was it because the nike air zoom infiltrator tureen was empty, and because the alleged smell of burned coach camarillo outlet arsenic might be accounted for on the theory that the shaun white oakley remains of the soup brought from the dining room had been mens coach shoes thrown on the kitchen fire? But no remains of soup oakley sunglasses custom came down it had been all consumed by the coach outlet jackson nj guests. And what is still more remarkable, the only person ray ban repair parts in the kitchen (excepting Marie and the nurse) who could prescription sunglasses oakley not discover the smell of burned arsenic, was the person ray ban 8307 of all others who was professionally qualified to find it pink coach out first the apothecary himself.
After examining the tureen and coach factory invite the plates, and stirring up the wood ashes on the fire, ray ban polarized sun glasses and making no sort of discovery, Monsieur Thierry turned to handbags coach Marie, and asked if she could account for what had ray ban sunglasses buy happened. She simply replied that she knew nothing at all career coach about it; and thereupon her mistress and the rest of oakley nanowire 1.0 the persons present all overwhelmed her together with a perfect oakley unknown torrent of questions. The poor chaussure de football nike junior girl, terrified by the hubbub, clubmaster ray bans cheap worn out by a sleepless night and by the hard nike air max basketball shoes work and agitation of the day preceding it, burst into oakley g30 lens an hysterical fit of tears, and was ordered out of oakley straight jacket sunglasses the kitchen to lie down and recover herself. The only oakley clothing person who showed her the least pity and offered her nike outlet portland the slightest attention, was a servant girl like herself, who lived oakley glasses for women next door, and who stole up to the room in oakley ski gear which she was weeping alone, with a cup of warm oakley straight jackets milk and water to comfort her.
Meanwhile the report had spread in the coach peyton town that the old man, Monsieur De Beaulieu, and the oakley liv whole Duparc family had been poisoned by their servant. Madame oakley kids Duparc did her best to give the rumor the widest how much do ray bans cost possible circulation. The poor girl was surrounded in a moment; nike free 40 review angry faces and shrill voices met her on every side; coach outlet phoenix az the most insolent questions, the most extravagant accusations, assailed her; running coach and not one word that she could say in her oakley gascan lenses own defense was listened to for an instant. She had ray ban nyc sprung up in the bed, on her knees, and was nike shox turbo vi frantically entreating for permission to speak in her own defense, ray ban sunglasses reflective lenses when a new personage appeared on the scene, and stilled coach shoes for women the clamor by his presence. This individual was a surgeon coach outline online named H bert, a friend of Madame Duparc s, who announced that coach laptop cases he had arrived to give the family the benefit of coach factory outlet store locations his assistance, and who proposed to commence operations by searching ray ban sunglass sizes the servant s pockets without further delay.
The instant Marie heard him coach outlet pigeon forge tn make this proposal she untied her pockets, and gave them ray ban 4118 to Surgeon H bert with her own hands. He examined them oakley jackknife on the spot. In one he found some copper money ray ban 4140 and a thimble. In the other (to use his own nike air zoom super bad words, given in evidence) he discovered various fragments of bread, ray ban 8305 sprinkled over with some minute substance which was white and air jordan 11 retro low shining. He kept the fragments of bread, and left the ray ban discount sunglasses room immediately without saying a word. By this course of mirrored ray bans aviator proceeding he gave Marie no chance of stating at the coach factory outlet official site outset whether she knew of the fragments of bread being monster pup oakley in her pocket, or whether she was totally ignorant how air jordan 6 they came there. Setting aside, for the present, the question, girls with ray bans whether there was really any arsenic on the crumbs at coach purse outlet store locations all, it would clearly have been showing the unfortunate maid of all work no more than common justice to have allowed her the opportunity of speaking before the bread was carried away.
It was now seven o clock in the evening. The next event was the arrival of another officious visitor. The new friend in need belonged to the legal profession he was an advocate named Friley. Monsieur Friley s legal instincts led him straightway to a conclusion which seriously advanced the progress of events. Having heard the statement of Madame Duparc and her daughter, he decided that it was his duty to lodge an information against Marie before the Procurator of the king, at Caen.
The Procurator of the king is, by this time, no stranger to the reader. He was the same Monsieur Revel who had taken such an amazingly strong ray ban wayfarer glasses interest in Marie s fortunes, and who had strongly advised her to try her luck at Caen. Here then, surely, was a friend found at last for the original ray bans forlorn maid of all work. We shall see how Monsieur ray bans clubmasters Revel acted, after Friley s information had been duly lodged.
The French nike air max one law nike tiempo prix of the period, and, it may be added, the nike shoe outlet online commonest principles of justice also, required the Procurator to perform oakley canada certain plain duties as soon as the accusation against Marie coach training had reached his ears.
He was, in the first place, bound oakley rx glasses to proceed immediately, accompanied by his official colleague, to the coach wristlet spot where the alleged crime of poisoning was supposed to oakley sunglasses repair have taken place. Arrived there, it was his business to aviator ray bans sale ascertain for himself the condition of the persons attacked with coach locations illness; to hear their statements; to examine the rooms, the discount oakley sunglasses kitchen utensils, and the family medicine chest, if there happened to pink oakleys nike tiempo prix be one in the house; to receive any statement the oakley ski jacket accused person might wish to make; to take down her coach outlet johnson creek answers to his questions; and, lastly, to keep anything found ray ban collection on the servant (the bread crumbs, for instance, of which Surgeon nike air jordan 14 H bert had coolly taken possession), or anything found about the oakley warranty house which it might be necessary to produce in evidence, oakley minute 1.0 in a position of absolute security, under the hand and nike shox tl seal of justice.
These were the plain duties which Monsieur Revel, nike sb dunk mid pro the Procurator, was officially bound to fulfill. To what motive could this scandalous violation ray ban sunglasses shop online of his duties and of justice be attributed? The last oakley m frame strike we saw of Monsieur Revel, he was so benevolently disposed air max 95 toward Marie that he condescended to advise her about her oakley sunglasses sport prospects in life, and even went the length of recommending nike air jordan wholesale her to seek for a situation in the very town nike outlet orlando in which he lived himself. And now we find him coach outlet coach so suddenly and bitterly hostile toward the former object of oakley lens replacement his patronage, that he actually lends the assistance of his oakley sunglasses wholesale high official position to sanction an accusation against her, into ray ban 4075 the truth or falsehood of which he had not made ray ban sunglasses 3025 a single inquiry! Can it be that Monsieur Revel s interest oakley promo codes in Marie was, after all, not of the purest possible air jordan release dates kind, and that the unfortunate girl proved too stubbornly virtuous ray ban sunglasses clearance to be taught what the real end was toward which black aviator ray bans the attentions of her over benevolent adviser privately pointed? There is coach wallet men no evidence attaching to the case (as how should there nike air max tailwind 5 be?) to prove this. But is there any other explanation ray bans sunglasses prices of Monsieur Revel s conduct which at all tends to account coach outlet store website for the extraordinary inconsistency of it?
Having received his secret instructions, oakley razor blades the Commissary of Police a man named Bertot ray ban new wayfarer rb2132 proceeded to the house of Monsieur and Madame Duparc, disguised best ray bans in plain clothes. His first proceeding was to order Marie nike air max boys to produce the various plates, dishes, and kitchen utensils which had sale coach bags been used at the dinner of Tuesday, the seventh of ray ban rb4147 August (that being the day on which the poisoning of nike air max classic the company was alleged to have taken place). Marie produced ray ban new wayfarer eyeglasses a saucepan, an earthen vessel, a stew pan, and several plates oakley store locations piled on each other, in one of which there were voice coach the remains of some soup. These articles Bertot locked up oakley cycling glasses in the kitchen cupboard, and took away the key with oakley hdo him. He ought to have taken the additional precaution of coach wallets placing a seal on the cupboard, so as to prevent eyeglasses ray ban any tampering with the lock, or any treachery with a nike dunk high duplicate key. But this he neglected to do.
His next proceeding coach outlet michigan city was to tell Marie that the Procurator Revel wished to nike air max 1995 speak to her, and to propose that she should accompany foldable ray ban sunglasses him to the presence of that gentleman forthwith. Not having shop coach factory outlet online the slightest suspicion of any treachery, she willingly consented, and buy ray ban aviator sunglasses left the house with the Commissary. A friend of the city of oakley Duparcs, named Vassol, accompanied them chaussure de football nike junior nike tiempo prix.
