Meeting/Press Conference

I compared the Minnesota Daily article about the unveiling of the Educational Sciences Building with a news release put out by the University News Service.

The press release was a lot more sterile and full of dry facts than the Daily article. The reporter interviewed a series of sources about the project and framed it as a coming together of three related departments.

The press release is really uninteresting. I read it before I read the article and wondered how the reporter would bring it to life. The interviews were what made the story worth reading.
