Andy Rooney's obituary is traditional

| No Comments

The New York Times's obitiary of Andy Rooney followed the traditional format fairly well.

It cites a statement by CBS News and quotations from friends and co-workers.

Rooney's obituary includes a few paragraphs about his suspensions from CBS, following offensive comments.

The lead is standart for an obituary, and it does work. Since Rooney was such a character, a more creative lead could have worked, too.

The obituary is different from a resume because it includes much more voice and focus on his opinions, not his work experience.
