This article had an effective lead that did draw me in and intrigued me to read more. The article discussed Ben Carson’s uncommon path to success recently in the presidential campaign. It started by evaluating the extreme differences between Carson and fellow Republican candidate Donald Trump. They are nearly complete opposites in personality. Trump is flamboyant, loud, and has no filter, whereas Carson takes the opposite approach of humble, quiet, and “nice”. The article suggests that people are noticing and appreciating this attitude of Carson as he has gained momentum in the race.
This story is absolutely newsworthy because it is relevant to anybody interested in the Presidential race. This might be somewhat more attractive to Republican Party members, but Democrats pay close attention to the entire race as well. If I were to do anything differently I would not focus as much attention to Trump and try to compare Carson to other candidates that are also in the race. Overall a well-written article that captured my attention.
