Final Project Source Notes (4)

Posted by mattieliz on January 30, 2009

Source Notes (4): Health Care Now

Title: Health Care Now

Summary: This is more of an opinion than a news article but states that this is no time to let campaign promises of guaranteed health care be quietly forgotten. The author thinks we [Americans] need to push for health care now.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Journalistic

What is it?: A news article from the web version of the New York Times.

Publication Information: The New York Times, January 29, 2009

Author: Paul Krugman

Location: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/30/opinion/30krugman.html?ref=opinion

Accessed: January 29, 2009

Support:

Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of Staff; F.D.R. (Franklin Roosevelt); Bill Clinton; Barney Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

Audience and Agenda: This is the second time so far that I have used the web version of the New York Times as a source because I think it’s a reliable one and it always has up-to-date information, such as this article.

Usefulness: As I said before, this article was full of opinions, which I like to read about so I can get an idea of what other people are thinking about this issue. I found it somewhat useful but don’t know if I will use it for my final project, especially because I did find it to be a little bias.
