Writing Styles of Thucydides and Herodotus

Thucydides spent the majority of his time gathering evidence and information.  He had little information, but it was all very important and accurate.  He mad sure his work was absolutely perfect and valid able.  Herodotus was the exact opposite.  Like other historians at the time he wrote down everything he heard.  His sources weren't very important to him and he had little evidence to back up his findings.  Although many of his stories weren't accurate few were.  He was often criticized for his incorrect information.

Something Thucydides may have written might have looked like this:
This article contains information and facts behind the 9/11 attack instead of opinions from other people.
This article has careless information without any facts, this is something Herodotus might have written.
