The first bus plunge story that I viewed was called "20 die in Nepal bus plunge: police."
What does it list:
- It begins with a death toll.
- It only lists information from the police - What about witnesses?
- It concludes by saying that most accidents occur because of the vehicles, but what about the police inspections that will be done on the bus? This isn't mentioned.
Article #2: "Many dead in Kashmir bus plunge"
- This article also states that 20 people were killed, hmmm...
- This article is also blaming the accidents on the vehicles or drivers. (Another comparison)
- There are not any direct quotes, but some paraphrasing.
Both articles are extremely short which is why they probably filled the empty space in the papers when needed. There is not a lot of information, but just some quick facts to report to the viewers. It is good in one way because of how short they are, but do they really serve a purpose for the viewer other than to tell them that another bus plunge happened in such and such a country. Interesting.
