This story was written about a culture group different than my own, the Egyptian Coptic church. The story moves beyond the stereotypes of these people simply by explaining what happened during the ceremony, and explaining the views of the Egyptians in the Coptic religion. This makes the story more substantive because it explains the situation as the writer saw it, and explains the view of the Egyptians through sources. This makes it not appear to have an extreme outsider biased of what happened.
The reporter had to talk to people from that area to know about the event, and the significance of the event. The reporter also had to get an inside view of what being a Coptic Egyptian is like in Egypt. The reporter also talked to multiple sources, who he referenced in his story, to get that insider knowledge of the situation in Egypt.
