An interview written by Marshall, a newspaper reporter. In the interview, Marshall gives Mccandless’s background information and talks about Krakauer’s reasons of writing McCandless’s story. Krakauer also uses his personal example to tell readers that why McCandless needs to go into the wild. This shows that Krakauer is a suitable person to write the story. It helps readers to understand Krakauer and McCandless more; however, it is just in a shallow introduction of Krakauer and McCandless only.

Craig, the Daily News editor, wrote an article about the interview with Jon Krakauer. Krakauer is the writer of a stories collection book called ‘Eiger Dreams.’ The interview is about how Krakauer looks at mountain climbing. Base on Krakauer’s reply, Craig puts on his point of view and the perceiving of the general public towards mountain climbing. The source is trustful but not objective. It is because Craig believes Krakauer is a good example of what is living; he adds in too many personal comments to support Krakauer.
