I am writing a magazine article for a class. I have looked up how to cite sources and still don't quite understand. I am using Associated Press (AP Style). I am writing about a famous person. I have read a lot about this person, but I can't interview this person, so my article will be based just on other articles that I have read. Can I site my sources at the bottom of the page and site a few of the sources within the article? What good is a rehash of other things already written about a person? I mean the only original stuff in my article will be my opinions about this person, if I decide to use them. I'm confused.
