News Comment #16

The story is newsworthy because there are reports of anti-Trump bias in the FBI investigation of Trump and the Russians. The story is also newsworthy by the claims of double standards in the case by the Republican Party.

The article has a broadcast video version of the story. The video goes deeper into the report and discusses what is going to happen next.

The article is long, but it also has information from other stories like the firing of an FBI agent for anti-Trump texts and Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the investigators.

The audience is political fans, people interested in the Mueller probe, Trump supporters, and people who are very curious to see what is going to happen next in the anti-Trump dossier.

The lede is compelling because it gives details on what exactly is happening at the moment in the Mueller probe.

The point of view is in the third person. The quotes are in the second and first persons.

One thing that is missing in the article is President Trump’s response to what has been happening recently with the dossier and the other investigations.

Another thing missing in this story is an official statement from the Republican and Democrat parties, the FBI, and Justice Department. The comments that these groups make will help people to see what each side is trying to do and think to complete the investigations correctly.

The story is newsworthy because NBC fired Matt Lauer from a complaint of sexual misconduct against him. He has now put out an apology statement expressing how sorry he is for his actions.

There is a quick broadcast version of the story above the article. Now, there are more women are coming out about Lauer’s inappropriate behavior towards them.

Half of the article was the statement that Laurer wrote. His former Today co-host read his comment on-air today.

A part of the article is a summary of the Lauer controversy. Another part is the new information added on to the headline like the new allegations and a comment from NBC.

The audience is people who are interested in what’s happening in this controversy, people who have followed all of the sexual allegations stories, fans of the Today show, and fans of NBC.

The lede is compelling because it gives an update on the allegations and tells the reader why this article is essential like Lauer stated about the alleged claims.

The point of view in the article is in the third person. The quotes from Lauer are in the first person and the second person.

One thing that is missing in the article is what do the former co-workers of Lauer think of the allegations. The people at the Today show might be able to give an insight of Lauer’s behavior.

This story is newsworthy because Republicans want Roy Moore, who is being accused of sexual misconduct allegations, replaced and are looking for options to replace him.

There is a video version of the story above it. The video gets to the heart of the story and the issue at hand. It makes it easier to match names and faces together for a viewer.

The story is very long and detailed for readers to understand what the Republicans have for choices when it comes to the Moore and the election.

The story split into eight parts to know all of the possible outcomes that might happen for the December 12th election in Alabama.

The audience is people who are following the continuing stories about sexual allegations in Hollywood, political fans, Republicans, and people who want to see what’s happening with these claims.

The lede is compelling because it gives an update on what’s been going on with the Moore controversy. It also offers why this story is relevant to the readers.

The point of view is the third person. Some of the quotes in the article are either in the second person or the first person.

One thing that is missing the comment from the Republicans about what is going to happen with Moore. In the video above the story shows Mitch McConnell that he stands by the women accusing Moore of sexual misconduct.

The story is newsworthy because of Trump commenting on the U.S. trade deal with China is not fair for the U.S.

The article is also newsworthy because Trump wants China to put pressure on North Korea to abandon their nuclear plans.

The article only has one picture of President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping. The Associated Press contributed information for the article.

The article has the part about North Korea in the middle. The U.S. trade deal with China surrounds that portion.

There needs to be more information about China and North Korea in the article. That part looks like a sore thumb in the story.

Trump made a few comments on both of these issues. Most of the article is the comments of Trump and Xi.

The audience is political fans, people interested in the trade deal, people interested in what’s happening in North Korea, and people involved in anything Trump is doing.

The lede is compelling because it gives lots of information for a summary of the article. The lede is very long and has two short quotes from Trump.

The point of view is the third person. The comments made by Trump are the first person.

One thing that is missing in the article is there should be more comments from President Xi about the trade deal with the U.S. and North Korea.

This story is newsworthy because there are 200 people possibly dead including rescuers that are in an underground tunnel near a nuclear test site in North Korea. This collapse happened on Oct 10, and the U.S. heard about this yesterday.

There is a broadcast version of this story above the article. There are a couple of big pictures in the story. One of a Japanese Meteorological Agency’s directors and one with Kim Jong Un with a nuclear warhead.

The pictures take up a lot of space in the article which shows that story is small and not have a lot of information. There is a limited amount of information that’s coming out about this event.

The Washington Post and Japan’s Asahi TV information used for this article. North Korea made a statement through the Korean Central News Agency.

The audience is international news people, political fans, and people who are interested in what’s going on in North Korea at the moment.

The lede is compelling because it tells what’s going on at a North Korea nuclear test site. The point of view is in the third person.

One part that is missing from this story is the U.S.’s response to North Korea’s Korea Central News Agency and the Hermit Kingdom statements. Another part is how the U.S. is going to handle what North Korea is doing lately with nuclear testings.

The article is newsworthy because the Trump Administration has settled lawsuits against the Tea Party and conservative groups that have been targeted by IRS under the Obama Administration.

The controversy started in 2013 when the IRS admitted putting more scrutiny on conservative groups that were applying for nonprofit status.

The Justice’s Department settled lawsuits with over 400 conservative groups that were in the case.

The story has two big pictures. The first one at the beginning was a group of conservatives protesting. The other one in the middle of the story is Former IRS official Lois Lerner, who became the face of the scandal.

The audience is political fans, conservatives, Trump supporters, and people who don’t like the IRS.

The lede is compelling because it gives a recap of the scandal and gives the update on what the Trump Administration is going to do about this controversy.

The point of view in the story is the third person. The comments from the lead counsel for the conservatives groups in the lawsuits, Eddie Greim, were in the second person.

A missing piece to this article is a comment from the IRS on the scandal. They did not respond to Fox News for an explanation, so Fox News use court documents to find an apology from the agency.

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.

News Comment #8

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.

Media Comparison (News Comment 7)

-ABC News

The broadcast video goes straight to the headline and gives the central detail where people want to be tuned in to watch. The print story has the lead that is the State Department spokesperson talking to the press.

The length and content of the video are bringing information in about two minutes but also the most important details first.

The print story’s length and content are updating readers on the situation between Tillerson and Trump. The article is longer than the video, and the material in the print story is more detailed than the video.

Both the video and story use sources and quotes from the State Department spokesperson, Tillerson, Trump, and Trump’s tweet.

The print used sources like NBC News and a quote from an NBC report. The video used a quote from GOP Senator Bob Corker.

Both the print and video used attribution correctly to tell the readers where these quotes and sources.

Print and video can tell the viewers/readers where these came from and showed proof by linking the source in the story and having clips of that person(s) speaking.

The role of sounds and pictures help the audience see what is being talked about and see what the person(s) look like and match the voice to a face.

Something interesting about comparing the print story to a broadcast video is how they are both about the same topic and article but also can be two entirely different stories at the same time too.
