Diplomats meet about Syria

| No Comments

This story was about diplomats from Iran and Turkey meeting to discuss a peace plan for Syria titled "Syria Crisis tops diplomatic agency at Turkey-Iran meeting, Arab League Summit, Clinton talks" in the Washington Post. The story was done by two reporters named Alice Fordham and Karen DeYoung.
Their first source was the Iranian state media which provided most of the basic info for the story. They sourced their next piece of information about the peace plan to the Iranian foreign minister who spoke to the journalists in Tehran.
They quoted Syran media quoting President al-Assad, followed by a scholarly source: a professor of international relations at Lehigh University. They used him again for a quote then back and forth between previous sources and wireless reports.
All in all, they got most of their sources from other media or sources not directly related to the people the story was about. They started out with facts about main story: the diplomatic meeting. But then they veered off to side stories about Turkey and Iran and humanitarian aid, clearly trying to provide context to their story.
