Critique of article as of 23:48, 14 August 2006 (UTC)[edit]

Steven S. Reinemund, director and CEO of PepsiCo Inc. announced his retirement effective in May, 2007. Reinemund, 58, said today he's leaving to spend more time with his family.
Was it a press release? Who did he say it to?
PepsiCo announced that Indra Nooyi, currently president and CFO, will take over for Reinemund.
When did PepsiCo say this?
Nooyi's current position will be split in two and filled by Richard Goodman, 57, currently CFO of PepsiCo International, who will become CFO; and Hugh Johnston, 44, currently senior vice president of transformation, who was promoted to the newly created post of executive vice president of operations, procurement and information technology.
According to who, what source? Why is this sentence so long?
Nooyi, 50, is a Yale-educated daughter of a middle-class Indian family.
According to who/what source?
She will succeed Steven S. Reinemund, in October, the company said.
Finally a source, but no when they said it? What day was it said?
Reinemund will stay with PepsiCo until May, 2007, to provide some overlap and continuity.
Unless this is cited in the paragraph, it is a NPOV violation - sice it is the opinion of the author.
Together, Nooyi and Reinemund have guided PepsiCo through several large take-overs and has seen the company overtake The Coca-Cola Company both in terms of sales and market value. Coca-Cola is still the no. 1 soft-drink maker as a significant portion of PepsiCo's sales come via brands Frito-Lay and Quaker Oats.
Needs a source.
Some on Wall Street were suprised by Reinemund's retirement at a relative young age.
without a specific source cited, this is a NPOV-violation in being a w:weasel word-using sentence
The stock closed at $63.95 up $0.62 per share on the day.
Which market? Which day?

Was it a press release? Who did he say it to? Yes it was the press release in the sources: "[1];PepsiCo announced that Indra Nooyi, currently president and CFO, will take over for Reinemund.:When did PepsiCo say this? same press release
Nooyi's current position will be split in two and filled by Richard Goodman, 57, currently CFO of PepsiCo International, who will become CFO; and Hugh Johnston, 44, currently senior vice president of transformation, who was promoted to the newly created post of executive vice president of operations, procurement and information technology.
According to who, what source? Why is this sentence so long? (1) according to page two of the Reuters source. (2) I don't know, why don't you just break it into two or more sentences?
Nooyi, 50, is a Yale-educated daughter of a middle-class Indian family.
According to who/what source? Wikipedia
She will succeed Steven S. Reinemund, in October, the company said.
Finally a source, but no when they said it? What day was it said? In the press release of 8/14
Reinemund will stay with PepsiCo until May, 2007, to provide some overlap and continuity.
Unless this is cited in the paragraph, it is a NPOV violation - sice it is the opinion of the author. true, i removed the overlap/continuity part
Together, Nooyi and Reinemund have guided PepsiCo through several large take-overs and has seen the company overtake The Coca-Cola Company both in terms of sales and market value. Coca-Cola is still the no. 1 soft-drink maker as a significant portion of PepsiCo's sales come via brands Frito-Lay and Quaker Oats.
Needs a source. see the Bloomberg source, but also added source MSNBC for portion of non-drink brands.
Some on Wall Street were suprised by Reinemund's retirement at a relative young age.
without a specific source cited, this is a NPOV-violation in being a w:weasel word-using sentence removed "relatively young age"
The stock closed at $63.95 up $0.62 per share on the day.
Which market? Which day? Well, NYSE, added that - day of article of course - but added phrase "day of announcement" nonetheless

Unless you want each sentence footnoted I don't see your quarrell. Sincerely, --SVTCobra 00:52, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

It was just sloppy reporting. Maybe it would help if more wikijournalists were following the Wikinews Style guide on reporting on future events (the future assumption of a role) and crediting sources (Wikinews:Style_guide#Attribution)in the sentence to avoid reader confusion or allegations of copyright infringement. -- Davodd | Talk 22:00, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
