9)The Chicago Tribune and Newsday both did a story on the New York Stock Exchange’s recent scandal involving the resignation ex- chairman and chief executive Richard Grasso.
Newsday used a delayed identification for the lead and started with the 139.5 million dollar pay package that caused Grasso to resign. However, the Chicago Tribune used an immediate identification lead and leaned more toward experts and the need for changes in the NYSE system.
The Chicago tribune also reported that Grasso accumulated 188 million dollars and only gave up $48 million of it.
Newsday gave more information about what the NYSE role is in trade forums and securing the firms and traders in those forums. They explained how the “Big Board” was self-regulatory and the article clearly implied that it should not be doing both or more problems like this will arise.
The Chicago Tribune had important quotes from the lead director H. Carl McCall. He basically talked about how the NYSE is going to be different and that change is in the future.
Both articles did a great job of giving information. However, I prefer the Chicago tribune because it had more sources and seemed more in-depth than Newsday. Also I feel that the lead was better constructed.
