Analysis:Obits

| No Comments

This was a very standard obit. The one thing different was it had prominent sources like Barack Obama because the deceased was a Civil Rights Activist. It followed the New York Times story almost exactly. It started with a lead which named the person and their main contributions along with their age and death. An obit used information from a resume, however it is more personal. It goes through their life and highlights what happened. It gives them a legacy.
This story was from the New York Times.
