News Comment #9

Posted at 10:17 AM under News Comments

-Fox News

The story is newsworthy because President Trump’s pick to be the drug czar in the administration, Rep. Tom Marino is pulling his name out from consideration.

There is a report of Marino weakening the Drug Enhancement Administration going after big drug distributors.

The article has a video that brings it the report to a broadcast story with analysis of the story. The report shows a picture of a tweet from Trump about Marino’s withdraw.

The article has a right size to it and straight to the point. The Associated Press contributed information to this report.

The audience is political fans, people interested in what Trump is doing, and Democrats who want to see Trump fail.

The lede is good because it summarizes why Marino is withdrawing his name from drug czar.

The point of view in this article is in the third person. The tweet is in first and second person. The rest of the article is written the third person to have objectivity.

A missing part of the article is a comment from Marino. He has not responded to these allegations yet.

Another missing part of this article is a comment from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The story has a comment from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer about Marino.

    This being Fox, it softsells the allegations against Marino. The fact that he dropped out is strong evidence the allegations against him had teeth.
