For my speech analysis, I found a story from USA Today written about Obama's United Auto Workers' speech.
The story gave a critical look at Obama's politics behind the speech: whether he was actually just addressing the American public, or if he was getting into campaign mode.
The reporter gave both sides to the argument, and facts backing up why either could be true.
Overall, there is no exact answer to the critical analysis made by the reporter. He leaves the interpretation up to the reader. I think that is how the reporter goes beyond the story to help display the importance of the speech.
