The topic that will be discussed in this critique is the Planned Parenthood attack in Colorado. The first article of analysis is called, ““Planned Parenthood Official Says Colorado Gunman Opposed Abortion.” This article was written by Fox News but there was no author listed. The article provided a brief summary of the events that took occurred on the day of the event, and also disclosed personal information about Robert .L. Dear. The second article of analysis is called, “Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting Suspect Declares, “I’m Guilty”; written by Thomson Reuters of the CBC News.
