Protest

Summary: Iraq – A large protest of Shiites broke out in Najafde demanding that the U.S. Pull out of Iraq. U.S. Officials said they didn’t agree with the message but they did agree how they’re practicing free speech

Challenge: The reporter has a challenge of bias in this story. There is a lot of the anti American Iraq war speech going around but the reporter did a nice making it so it was not an issue in this story

Comparison: The New York Times reported that a suicide car bomb killed three civilians and wounded four others on Sunday night.

Opinion: This was a successful story. It was interesting because the Iraqi’s are practicing their democracy. The story is long and in depth. It gives the readers a broad overview of everything else that is happening in Iraq.
