Paranormal Journalism

Journalist and Northwest Instructor, Jason Offutt, teaches paranormal journalism in which students will study anything and everything paranormal. From Ghosts to Time Machine's, this class is meant to teach students how to report on these phenomena in an unbiased fashion. Throughout the semester students will interview and report on people's personal encounters and even visit possiblely haunted places within 50 miles of the University. Offutt says his frustration with the way paranormal activity is portrayed in the media was just the push he needed to combine his love for journalism and the supernatural into a class. Offutt also purchased a Time Machine which he will use in class. He tested the device and said he went nowhere. As for the paranormal Offutt says if you're sleeping and you hear knocking at your door or footsteps and voices in the hallway, sleep tight, it is probably nothing.
