This article comes from Reuters, an international news agency that is based in London. The article is based off a study that shows that Malaria effects twice as many people as we previously thought. Here is the link to the article:
Malaria is a prevalent killer across the globe, but it’s not a common problem in the U.S. Throughout the article, did the author convince you that this issue is important? Who is the intended audience for this article?
The author provides 2 opposing viewpoints: the view of the IHME that believes Malaria affects all ages and WHO that believes Malaria primarily affects children. Based off the quotes, does the author seem to favor one view over the other? Does the author balance the arguments well?
What do you think about the kicker of the story? Do you think the author could have ended the article better to make a stronger impact? If so, how?
