Analysis: David Petraeus resigns as CIA director

| No Comments

This article is from Nov. 9 when David Petraeus resigned as the CIA director.

I thought that the reporters did a good job moving past just what they got from Petraeus. The article was more well-rounded because they did a lot of additional reporting.

For example, the reporters were not going to have access to Paula Broadwell. It seems that they did extensive research into her past to make up for that. They went back and found old interviews so people could get a sense of her. By doing this additional research, they gave readers a personality behind a name.

I think they also did a good job explaining the magnitude of the situation. They provided a lot of background information into who Petraeus is and why he is important. Without this information, people would not understand why his resignation is so impactful.
