Analysis: Speech

| No Comments

Bill Clinton spent time in Wisconsin this week, speaking to a large crowd at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Friday evening, according to an article in the FDL Reporter.

The article written about Clinton's speech follows some of the basic rules discussed in class. The reporter used strong words to describe Clinton's speaking, words like "making the case," "defended" and "blasted."

For the most part, the article follows the point-quote style. The reporter makes a statement before backing it up with a specific quote made by Clinton.

The article does a nice job structurally, though I would move the second paragraph, which describes where the speech was held and the crowd size, down at least one paragraph.

The article also gives relevant background information concerning the speech, including information about who else has been campaigning for President Obama in Wisconsin. In addition, the article provides information about the election and voting procedures.
