Many sources are named in a Sunday New York Times article about Sri Lankan politics.
Writer Lydia Polgreen cites five different men from the Sri Lankan political scene. The article centers around the issue of the Tamil ethnic group based in the northerner penninsula of Jaffna in Sri Lanka. Polgreen's sources are mostly pro-Tamil independence, with two of them straddling the fence between independence and nationalism, and the incumbent Sri Lankan president who is very much a nationalist.
Her sources consist of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who claims responsibility for quelling the 26-year Tamil rebellion, Professor S. K. Sitrampalam, a historian who is also a senior member of one of the largest Tamil political parties, Douglas Devananda, a former Tiger who has become a powerful minister in Rajapaksa's government, S. Arihan, president of the student union at the University of Jaffna, and Ahilan Kadirgamar of the Sri Lanka Democracy Forum, an organization that is trying to reconcile the country's ethnic divides.
More often than not, Polgreen uses direct quotations rather than paraphrasing in her story. Most quotes are also grouped near the end of the article to show contrasting ideas. No institutions or records are directly quoted. Her style and use of attribution is effective in getting the point across.
