What’s in the news this week — and what do we think about it?

Each week, Dissecting the News will examine several news stories with environmental or public health themes. Check out the links and join the conversation. What’s good about these stories? What could be improved? Do the stories succeed at grabbing attention? Do they fairly place new information in broad context, making it relevant to the widest number of people possible? Do the stories raise many unanswered questions? Do they use quotes well? Do they use interactive and visual elements of storytelling well? Do the stories end in a memorable and meaningful way?

What do you think?

We especially welcome comments from people outside of the University of Michigan class that’s launched this site. We want to know your opinions!
