If Klosterman is discussing modern Americans’ ability to conceive of and appreciate the power of violence in boxing, what criteria/evidence are offered to assess this?

Read Didion’s “Everywoman.com” and Klosterman’s “Nothing to Worry About.”  Both of these pieces use public figures as jumping off points for a review; however, they aren’t necessarily reviewing the figures as individuals.  Instead, they are reviewing the power of branding and society’s ability to understand violence in sport, respectively.  After reading both, post to this discussion board an abbreviated thesis statement for both and also briefly state the criteria that each author uses to assess their subject (share at least 4 criteria for each.)  For example, if Didion is discussing a blog that picks apart Martha Stewart’s branding empire, what criteria are used to assess how effective this brand is?  If Klosterman is discussing modern Americans’ ability to conceive of and appreciate the power of violence in boxing, what criteria/evidence are offered to assess this?  Your original post for both pieces should be uploaded by Wednesday at 11:59 PM and be approximately 300-400 words.  Keep Chapter 10 of Argument Today in mind when discerning the pieces’ thesis statements.  How does the author grab the audience’s attention and is each of their thesis statements open-ended, a question, or a more straightforward statement?
