Attribution Analysis: Star Tribune

| No Comments

In the Star Tribune article about the water main break in St. Paul, there were 2 sources that were cited. The first were the "officials" assumed to be police and the utility workers who responded. The second was Rick Larkin, the city's director of emergency management. The article used the officials as the source more towards the beginning of the article, and used many direct quotes from Larkin towards the end of the article. The attribution used in this article is very effective for explaining the story. I thought the quotes from Larkin rounded out the story and provided some more explanation as to how the situation was being handled.
