Far from being a perennial candidate per se, former Maryland Congressman and NAACP President Kweisi Mfume has cast a long shadow on Baltimore’s past two mayoral elections, emerging again this year as the city’s most famous perennial rumored ...
This article is relevant,and addresses issues that the audience may not have been aware of, even if they are residents in Baltimore.It is important to know what is going on in your community. The writer does a good job of getting the audience interested in the issues,and curious for more. One thing I would like to see added is more opposing voices.
I do believe that this is good journalism; the article is very informative ad relative to the residence of East Baltimore. The article is well-written and well sourced! There are a variety of voices in the piece.
I think it is a good example of good journalism. There are several voices and statistics shown that help provide a deeper look into the story. My only problem is the use of the word the middle east. Being that I am not from Baltimore I did not understand that they were talking about East Baltimore.
this was an example of good journalism! i enjoyed the story alot i would have liked to hear what the mayor thought about the company and maybe a citizen who didn't move or some one who's still lives in the community.
This is a good story, with very good quotes. I think we need to hear from at least one victim and a Baltimore resident. We need to know how they feel about the towing scheme and the large number of officers not on the streets as a result. It is also good to read what the mayor thoughts were.
This piece showed multiple sides of the story, from the students to the contractors. It also used colorful language and gets the reader interested in what is being said. The article leaves a lasting impression. One thing that could be improved is showing us why this event is so important, not only locally, but globally.
I enjoyed this article, yet it did not show both sides to the story. More official quotes are needed.What does it mean if the building is bulldozes besides a piece of history being lost? This is a question that needs to addressed. I like that the writer addresses what the Preservation Committee was ding, it makes for a good follow up story.
Though this story was factual, it was a bit one sided. It leans toward the side of the student protesters, but does not go into depth why this building is so important, and relevant today. The author tells you that this building has significant history, but many people would not deem this as a sufficient reason to keep it around. The pros and cons of bulldozing the building need to be shown more in depth and the writer should speak to other sources, including the developers who plan on making Lexington Square, and community members who are not emotionally invested into the historic site.
The title of the story was misleading, however because of this title the author gets you to focus on a subject that needs to be talked about. Illegal immigration is a relevant subject, that affects us all, and it does need to be discussed in detail, however improvements could have been made. The piece was choppy, not well sourced, but I understood why the writer would think it was important.
The topic of the article was very relevant and so was the overall idea the reporter was trying to relay. The article was poorly written with a weak conclusion, not much facts or good creditable sources. The title was a bit attracting, but it did not make me think the article would be about illegal, Brazilian, workers in Martha’s Vineyard. The article had nothing to do with President Obama and his family vacation. The article had no facts from President Obama’s Administration, mayor of that town, or human resources. The reporter needed facts, how many illegal immigrants are working in Martha’s Vineyard? The reporter went off topic, explaining, to long about a car accident between a speeding Caucasian twenty year old and an ... More »
The title to this article really throws off the entire story. The author may have been trying to grab the attention of the reader with the title being about racial tension and President Obama. The article focuses more towards illegal immigration than Obama's trip to Martha's Vineyard.
I would have like to see some statistics on how many people actually are illegal immigrants working at Martha’s Vineyard. I would also like to see more sources and quotes in the story. The headline is a bit misleading although it draws the reader in. I would like to see information from both sides. Also word choice is very important, be unbiased, good journalism is unbiased. On the plus side, I did not know that there were racial tensions on Martha’s Vineyard so that was enterprising.
This story could use some work. Quotes are important in reporting on issues like illegal immigrants, this story has a quote from what seems like the entire staff of Martha's Vineyard, there is no expert source on this issuse like a police officer stating why illegal immgrants are a problem. This story also uses bias words such as "white" suggesting the entire race and "Brazilian" suggesting the entire nationality. There are also some editing mistakes. It is not clear what the story is about.
