The Guardian updated a story on Silvio Berlusconi and his trial for paying for sex with a teenager. The first article was Tuesday, Feb. 15, and the updated story was Wednesday, Feb. 16.
The leads in the two stories differ because the first one talks about Silvio Berlusconi and how this trial will effect his position as prime minister. His supporters said the indictment was an attack on the will of the people, the Guardian reported . The second talks about how Berlusconi is "untroubled" by the trial.
The main news is summarized in the first story by the date of the trial in April that will have three women judges, and the possibility of an early election for the next prime minister, the Guardian reported. The second story summarizes by switching topics. Berlusconi told the Guardian that he was here to deal with the economy.
The second story advances the news by having more information of the Moroccan girl who was underage when Berlusconi allegedly paid for sex, and telephone records showed that Karima el-Mahroug had been at his mansion, reported the Guardian.
The second-day story is responding to further details that were obtained about the story. The details are related to El-Mahroug and Berlusconi's relationship.
The follow up story just provided more information on who El-Mahroug is and detailed some of her relationship with Berlusconi.
