The author of a story about Gabrielle Giffords' husband effectively used many sources.
The story, provided by the Associated Press, ran in the Boston Herald.
The first three paragraphs contained attributions to Giffords' doctor, NASA and Mark Kelly, respectively. The author did not directly quote the sources, but paraphrased the quotes of the sources, which helped portray the sources' thoughts smoothly and effectively.
While the article had a few direct quotes from Kelly, his colleagues, and his brother, it generally paraphrased ideas. This helped keep the story clear and focused, with the important facts brought to the reader in a direct manner.
