The story is newsworthy because Senator Al Franken has another groping allegation from a second woman.

The story has a broadcast version of the story that is about eight minutes long. The article also has a big picture of Senator Franken.

The article has two tweets from the second woman that is accusing Senator Franken of groping her in 2010. The second woman went to CNN and gave her story to them.

The Associated Press contributed to this article. This story also used information from CNN.

The lede is compelling because it tells the reader why Senator Franken is in the headlines. The lede also give an update on this story with a second woman coming out accusing Senator Franken of groping her.

The audience for this article is people who are against sexual misconduct, political fans, people who have following the Roy Moore controversy, and people who are interested in what’s going in the headlines.

The point of view in this story is the third person. The tweets and quotes in the articles are in the first person and second person.

One thing is missing from the story is that Franken should apologize directly to the second woman.

A second thing missing from this article is Franken publicly saying if he is going to resign or not from his position as Senator.

    There has now been a third, which means there will likely be more. I think your critiques fit a certain kind of story, Reilly. But with Franken, every new allegation or development is going to mean a new story and FOX isn’t likely to go back and update older stories. Franken and sexual harassment have currency and timeliness. Older stories that have lost those elements may just get an update rather than a new story.
