The title and the article itself are kind of contradictory, it's asking if there's been too much attention being drawn to the wedding, and yet they're reporting about the wedding... It shows how a wedding in the 21st century is being sold to us and how many different channels we can get this information that ultimately means little to the grand scheme of the world.

The journalism of this story is okay. It is relevant information, and most of the information is true, but some opinionated. There are not many experts quoted in the article, but overall it is a good story.

This article does show the big picture, however I believe they could even go further into context. To me, this article was informative about the wedding but was only somewhat informative about the topic of the story which is all the media this event is receiving. I do not think this article is super credible, there is not that many sources used. Also, some of the sources are used are just random people who may not be very credible. I think this article is somewhat well written but could have a clearer flow. Although this article is relevant in news today, it is not a significantly important event or one that will have an effect on many people.

This article answers its question if "Royal wedding worth the media frenzy?". Obviously it is being talked about so there's the answer. A wedding is supposed to be sacred and intimate but individuals are blowing it out of proportion. I feel this article but it doesn't show initiative.

I think this displays a good example of journalism. They not only go into a little background before going into their story. They have good sources and references to what they have found for their story. They play into both sides of the story to make the story have proper and accurate information. It was definitely well written and I would recomment this to readers as a must read.
