Evaluating One Blog Story (1st national link)

There has been a lot of talk this week about our economic crisis, especially in Monday’s edition of the NY Times.  The article entitled U.S. Bank Bailout to Rely in Part on Private Money was very interesting to read so I decided to evaluate this story by analyzing it to see if it has any of the news elements we have discussed in class so far.

The title alone describes a current issue.  Our economy has been struggling for quite sometime making it a on going event and problem that people are interested to read about.  The main topic of the article is how to bailout the banking system that is in financial crisis right now and this demonstrates conflict/change since the main concern is the question of who is going to buy the contaminating assets that wiped out the capital of many banks?  This definitely brings up a big conflict that needs to be fixed.  Lastly, this article also displays the timeliness news element since it is a story that is happening now and many people are affected by this.
