On Structure

CNN has an article that goes over Iran's parliament voting to label the CIA and U.S. Army as 'terrorist' groups. The article states that main point to the story in the lead and then gives reasons why IRNA, the country's state-run news agency and the parliament. The article then moves to the U.S. reaction to the labeling. It sums things up with some background information on the situation and the relationship between the United States and Iran. It also suggests the Iranian lawmakers' condemnation was in apparent retaliation for the U.S. Senate's resolution Wednesday requesting that the United States designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, or Quds Force, as a foreign terrorist organization. This way of organizing and summarizing is effective. They stated the news, then stated reaction to it, and then stated reasons why, background info, and conveyed things that further the story and make it more complete.
