Analysis: Car bomb kills 17 in Pakistan bazaar

| No Comments

In the Star Tribune's article, "Car bomb kills 17 in Pakistan bazaar," the author begins with a description of the bomb that was set off on Saturday, but then reviews the state of the Palastani Taliban and their recent shooting of a 14-year-old girl.

The author of this story uses several different sources. Multiple were cited in each aspect that the author covered, mainly from several government and military officials. The 14-year-old victim teacher's also gave a personal statement regarding the well being of the students after the incident.

Some sources remained un-named when information was reported. For example, the author gives attribution for the fact that 17 people were killed by ending the sentence with "officials said." When specific information or statements were given, a person was named attributing the facts. For example, "Provincial Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain blamed the Pakistani Taliban."

The sources are not from records, as these events have been happened within the last week and are still developing. The attributions given in the article are very effective. Not only does the author attribute information previously released by the media, he gives attribution to new information that further the article's information.
