News comment #8

For this weeks weekly news comment I decided to write about the former NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious and is left in critical conditions after a drug overdose.

I think this story is news worthy because Lamar Odom is a popular name in sports. He has struggled with a drug addiction for some time now and most people are aware of that.

The audience for this article would be anyone that is a fan of Lamar Odom.  Or a sports fan in general.

I think the lead is effective because they state what happened right away and gave the details through out the whole article. The article is very informative and lets fans and readers know what is happening with the situation.

I don’t think that anything is missing from this article and would not change anything.

    My guess is Odom would not be in the news now if it weren’t for his association with the Kardashians. ESPN would probably be covering it. Does this story include the details of his stay in the Nevada “gentlemen’s club”?
