Sources Analysis

| No Comments

The article I am analyzing is about an apparent homicide and it comes from the Pioneer Press. Here is the link.

Most of the information given comes from a police report and other facts of the situation attributed by the police spokesperson, who obviously appears to be a credible source, though they are never directly quoted.

The only person directly quoted is a man who attended church with the deceased woman and is familiar with the area. His quote is not one stating fact, just giving his opinion of the area's atmosphere.

I think the way the information is given with the available sources was effective. The stats and "guts" of the information surrounding the incident is given at the beginning, which is most of what people want to know and they want it from a credible source. Referring to the church goer for reaction to the incident is a good way to show how the community is responding, as some people are interested in that as well, though it is a little less important.
