Writing a Critical Commentary
i  SAMPLE 1:
i  The Title of the first article is a?Obama does not feel Americans privacy violated -chief of staff.a? It is a news article and it was written by the Reuters staff . It is available online at Reuters.com
i  I chose this article because its subject, the NSA spying scandal is at the forefront of the national consciousness right now. The structure of the presentation is a new article, with a summary of some of the most recent developments in the story; namely, the administrationas defense of its actions.
i  Though this article is presented as news, it is clearly meant as a defense of the administration. The headline and the first few paragraphs present the administrations defense of the program. The middle of the article presents some criticism, mainly from Democratic Senator Mark Udall. The criticism is relatively mild, compared to some other quotes over the past couple of weeks.
i  The article finished with strong defenses of the program from three sources: House of Representatives Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, FBI Director Robert Mueller and former Vice President, Dick Cheney. The author ends with Cheney, presumably because his defense of a Democratic administration is so noteworthy.
i  The author is to be praised for writing what amounts to a defense of the administration without presenting the article as such. In addition, the author uses a a?shiny objecta? device of a quote from Cheney implying that the 9/11 attacks could have been prevented by this type of spying program. He said, a?As everybody who has been associated with the programs said if we had this before 9/11, when there were two terrorists in San Diego two hijackers able to use that program, that capability against the target, we might have been able to prevent 9/11.a? Because 9/11 is so important in peopleas minds, the allusion to preventing 9/11 is sure to have a powerful effect on people. Furthermore, the author ends on this quote (and from Dick Cheney, no less) so as to leave this powerful image in the readeras mind at the end of the article.

Writing a Critical Commentary
SAMPLE 2:
Writing a Critical Commentary
i  Sample 2:
i  I found this cartoon at: political-cartoons.html . The source appears to be Raquel Fernandez.
i  I chose this cartoon because it expresses a frustration that many college graduates have today that they will not be able to find a good job upon graduation. In the cartoon, the person on the left apparently chose to join the army rather than try to get a job, while the person on the right has graduated only to find a hostile employment market.
i  The interesting thing about this cartoon is that is seeks to satirize two phenomena with only one cartoon: The phenomenon of the tough job market and the phenomenon of recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author is saying both that the job market is tough and that the military is very busy; hence the idea that the military could be a more attractive option than the workforce for new graduates.
i  In my opinion, the author tries to do too much with this cartoon. While the author is clearly trying to attack the fact that there are wars being fought by the US, the military has always tried to compete for young people, whether in war or peace time. That itas a?easier to find a war than a joba? is not really a good reason for someone to join the military rather than to look for a job. The military has always been an option. If anything, the fact that there are wars going on makes the military a less attractive option than the marketplace. Therefore, I think the cartoon falls kind of flat and is a little to confusing to make both of the points it tries to make effectively.
i  Note: Both samples can be made improved. In sample 1, more quotations from the article can be given. Sample 2 was not properly sourced.
