Numbers

In this story about Chrysler, the reporter uses numbers to show how many U.S. jobs Chrysler employs, how many employees it has laid off, and how much Chrysler owes suppliers and other businesses. The numbers are credited to Chrysler's own turnaround plan it filed with the government, and it is listed whole. The reporter uses numbers effectively to advance the story and the reader is never overwhelmed with the numbers. This piece is very effective at letting numbers tell the story but never overusing them.
