News Comment #8

Posted at 10:56 AM under News Comments

-Fox News

This article is newsworthy because Trump is threatening to the licenses of NBC News and other networks because of reports of nuclear arsenal report. President Trump has been outspoken about Fake News, and it isn’t the first time he has blasted the big stations over reports.

He tweets that, “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC News and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!”

Trump has been going after Fake News since the start of his presidency. It seems like this is not going to be the last time that reports and tweets like these.

The article gives what is needed to know for now. It is a new article when writing this news comment. There will probably be more information that comes out later on.

There is a prominent use of tweets from President Trump and MSNBC host Ali Velshi. The tweets inserted into the article before the pictures of the tweets, so there is no point of showing photos of the tweets if the tweets are already in the story.

The lede is not as compelling as it should be. It needs improvement to give the big summary of the article. The lede is a good start but doesn’t get the reader’s attention.

The audience is Trump supporters, people who don’t like Fake News, political fans, and people analyzing what Trump is doing. It is a full range of an audience, but it is Trump, so there will have lots of attention.

The point of view is the third person except for the tweets. The third person point of view is for the readers to understand the issue and know the facts. The first person is Trump speaking out on these reports from NBC.

A missing part of this article is how are the other networks going to respond to this. Another missing component is an official comment from NBC itself.  The last missing piece is what are the guidelines for networks like CBS, ABC, FOX, and NBC.

    The whole redundant tweet thing gets me, too. There are browsers, I think, maybe on phones, that don’t download images, which is probably why the text explanation is included. But how much of the audience gets their news that way? Is it enough that the rest of us have to get the same info twice?
