U of M bomb hoax-Local
eight buildings at the University of Minnesota were evacuated on Wednesday, because of a bomb threat sent that was found by a student in a bathroom.
The way the Star Tribune presents, Joe Plocher, the student who found the bomb threat's quote is probably more accurate than the Pioneer Press's. They give some background to what Plocher said and choose a quote that represents what he was really saying. In the Pioneer Press it is unclear if he just why he didn't think the note was dangerous, so I think he kind of looks stupid there. I also like how the Star Tribune goes into more detail about other bomb threats from around the country. It even mentions actions taken at high schools from surrounding areas to prevent copycats after the Virginia massacre. Star Tribune also talks to more students that were effected and gives more detail about the slow e-mail system and who was on seen i.e. the FBI and so on.
