News Comment week 3 (why this article has a good lede)

The article thatI chose has a good lede. The article is from Vox the title of the article is “North Korea just tested its most powerful nuclear bomb yet. The title alone makes me want to read more about it just because of the fact that this kind of thing is so important and can be a problem for me. The reason lede to the story is “North Korea just tested its most powerful nuclear weapon to date, posing its biggest challenge yet to President Donald Trump and threatening to escalate tensions with Washington that are already reaching potentially dangerous levels.” that right there the first sentence makes me want to know more. ┬áJust the fact that it has North Korea nuclear weapon and Trump all in one sentence makes you want to read more. This is a good way to get your readers in and get them to want to read more. Most people want to know what Trump is up to given the fact that he is our president and he holds the future of not just us but all of america in his hands for how he handles this news of Korea and the bomb. The lede is good in the fact that is give all the things we need to know it has everything that is the most important. I liked this lede and it made me actual read a article all the way to the end for ones.

  1. THIS lede also does that. The only issue I have is that it’s kind of long. A complex sentence as well.

  2. You’re right that the lede is supposed to make you want to read more. It is also supposed to supply the most important info, just in case you don’t continue reading. The lede also does that. The only issue I haveis that it;s kind of long. A complex sentence as well.

    Trump and Kim each hold the world in short-fingered hands.
