Harvard Names First Woman President

Historian Drew Gilpin Faust was named Harvard's first female president Sunday. The selection is interesting because there had been previous uproar after previous President Lawrence Summers said that "genetic differences between the sexes might help explain the dearth of women in top science jobs." Both the CNN and the Los Angeles Times are reporting on the story. As far as the structures for each story goes, the quotes are grouped together. The CNN article only has one quote, which is saved for the very end of the article, not broken up throughout. The LA TImes article has multiple quotes, but all are independent of eachother, not mixed throughout the story. Very interesting to see.
