People still use Myspace? With all of the other social networking websites such as Facebook, Skype and Twitter! You would think that this website would be on the brink of becoming forgotten. Nonetheless, this article I feel is irrelevant for all the reasons previously mentioned.

This is an issue that must be resolved effective immediately! The sooner the better.

I like how Woody immediately tied a response in after the introduction, this is the type of writing I've been looking for. This article is supported by statements, facts, data, etc. I love it, wish it could have been a little longer though.

This is a great human-interest piece! Even though there isn't much content within the actual article its good to hear something positive going on in the community every now and then.

Until there is actually documented research to support this theory, I'm going to have to take what this reporter says with a grain of salt sort of speak.

Even though Bill Clark clearly disregarded being objective while writing this story, I do feel that his claims were supported by facts that he carefully researched. It can be argued that this article was inflammatory as well, potentially ruining any future in politics for Alan Grayson.

(Sigh) Unfortunately we may never be able to fully recover from the oil spill BP created. I thought the reporter was a little late in getting a statement from a source within the article, that seemed to be the entire conclusion of the article, if your going to quote a statement as lengthy as the one stated, you should paraphrase it for future reference.

I wasn't familiar with the term "Tentherism," and what it entails in regards to the constitution until I had read this article. The writer did a great job of not only introducing the meaning behind the term itself, but explaining to the reader what it actually implemented. Job well done!

Although the headline of this article is somewhat lack luster, it does what it is meant to do which is to appeal to the reader. In regards to the article, Diehl went straight for the jugular by using his direct approach for this article. Even though their aren't many sources mentioned within the article, Diehl did a respectable job of doing what he could with the amount of information he had.

With the exception of the typo in the second sentence, do (to), I thought the article was decent at best. The reporter for this article didn't provide much information other then the statistics provided by somebody else who did the research. None of the research conveyed in this article appears to be valid.

Although I think this was a great article, It would have been nice if the reporter discussed the response of google in terms of what the company will do to make amends for their actions. However, this may pose as a job for the public relations representative for Google. Nonetheless, the article was well written.

I have heard stories of other instances of Chilean miners being trapped in mines, and even being killed as well. It is both unfortunate and fortunate that an incident of this magnitude gained this much attention when occurrences such as these happen frequently within the country of Chile.

Even though I feel Goldberg's personal feelings were vivid throughout the article as it relates to President Obama, his administration and his policy, I do feel that he provided great arguments as to why he feels that ways as a journalist always should.

This article in my opinion started off as nonobjective, making comments such as "might have helped his own slumping political fortunes." That to me was an indirect assault on our president and his administration.

I find it very odd that not only Mark Lyttle was unable to comment, but his lawyers as well. Though he is mentally disabled, his representation (lawyer/lawyers) should provide some sort of statement. I think the reporter for this article could have done a better job of finding a source for this particular story.

Richard A. Serrano does an excellent job of providing an in-depth analysis of how this situation is being handled. The reported I felt covered all questions as it pertains to this article, great job sir! Job well done.

I almost felt as if the reporter took a side when he initiated the article by conveying to the reader that there was a lack of information that still needed to be presented, however, for that same reason, I believe this article would be considered a good form of journalism, because the reporter lets the reader know in advance that the EPA hasn't clarified on the date as to when drivers should expect the new fuel mix.

I chose to label this article fair, because after reading the first two paragraphs of the article, I did feel the reporter was genuinely objective in his attempt to cover this story. The data was well researched and the quotes used within the article were fair, and objective.

Google never ceases to amaze, just when you think they've capitalized on all facets of the business world, BAM!!! The company hits you with another lucrative scheme to gain total domination over its search-engine counter parts.

I would classify this article as a work in progress, I feel if the reporter was to get another source, such as an actual police officer who works within the district, his or her response may have provided a bit more incite as to what they are trying to do to contain the injunction currently going on in that area. This may have helped provide a bit more depth to the actual article.

I would consider this good journalism, because Phil Gast does an excellent job of capitalizing on an already controversial social-issue, by incorporating a notarized university such as Georgia. In doing such, the reporter does an excellent job of conveying the story's relevance, and documented facts of the situation.

I thought this article did a great job of providing an in-depth background of the city of Shenandoah for those readers such as myself who have yet to hear the entire story as to what exactly happened.

Although I do believe this is good journalism, it would have been great to see Dave Zirin make a reference to William C. Holden's novel, "$40 Million Dollar Slaves" which talks more in-depth about the black athlete in today's society. Nonetheless, Zirin managed to effectively capture the the message of Holden's book and give a brief overview of what the the author was trying to convey to the reader. Although I do believe that race plays a factor, I also believe that it isn't the only factor in this situation.

This is good journalism because news is what is happening in the society in which we live. News is what people are talking about, as well as what people should talk about. This article exemplifies all the elements of what a news story is and should be. Although I would've liked to hear from a few sources such as a representative from the New Economics Foundation, rather then just having to click the link to view more information regarding what was already said about the economy.

The primary responsibility of good journalism is to tell us about us, to illuminate the society in which we live, and to help us with that most difficult of all imperatives: Know thyself. This article not only exemplified the previous statement, but did an outstanding job of conveying facts that are supported by credited sources as well. Great writing and reporting from Frank Sharry.
