A great way to dismantle the quips that sound sweet and simple on television. This is why we have newspapers. It is not enough to be suspicious of flippant exaggerations, better to know what the correct figures are. (Unfortunately, at the same time, I wonder if she- or other political commentators/candidates- actually care.)

An excellent blog post that allows reportage, research, and updated input from Times readers' comments to mix in an article that shows many sides of a controversial solution to a serious health issue.

A nice collection of viewpoints with little context, this is a quick read, that says either that the American people want it all or that they do not know what they want.

A clearly-presented discussion on an important world issue that includes both the regional and international perspectives on free speech, as well as what is being done about the problems surrounding it.

Overlooked by the main media outlets? Whatever the reason, investigative reports like this one will hopefully continue to reach the public.

I was waiting for this article, after seeing the original news report. As written up by many major news organizations, the story seemed to have many holes, and I appreciate seeing them presented as a clear outline, with links and context.

A good report on an interesting conflict, however, although both sides are presented, the article makes the financial service seem quite guilty already. Not a responsible action during court cases.

This piece has an introduction that builds up context and the various themes, before going into the study published in detail. Other kinds of migrant research are discussed in interesting comparisons, without taking away the main points of the article.

Makes informative points and observations, but abandons some of the wider issue to focus on the media's misread of the event.

A wider view on the political furor, televsion's role in the conflict, and how much a talk show host can do. Critical first-hand observations added to insight of the system as a whole.

I did not see the show, but the clips posted seem a lot more positive than they are presented by the columnist. The blame is laid down here with a heavy hand and comes off as fairly extreme.

Researching and presenting this story must have involved a serious amount of legwork and attention to detail. The use of multimedia brings the statistics together and focuses the reader on the scale of the problem, with equal emphasis on the human cost to the story, and the range of opinions on the solution.

Thorough and colorful, this article both ridicules the tea party inanity and looks at its potential inside the two-party system. A great read on a subject that has received an insane amount of press.

Strong reporting on an issue that will continue to be overlooked as news reports turn to other disasters. Uses local, knowledgeable sources to prove what should already be obvious, but is not. The oil has not and will not disappear.

The fact that memory is selective does not explain the attempted reinvention of the history of the civil rights movement. This opinion piece presents the reader with a variety of Republican statements that might otherwise have been overlooked, and discusses the collective meaning of them.

Somehow the same point needs to be made over and over again. The media exaggerates situations in order to get the public's attention and create a profit. It is hardly shocking anymore and yet, it is present in nearly every tense diplomatic issue. This article is a reminder of the media's culpability, and illustrates its points with memorable examples.

A good reminder that the state of the border was not always controversial, and an entertaining personal setting for history, but a little more information about the border at the time would round out the story.

In a country where religion is a loud and constant topic, other opinions need to be equally loud and (much more) well-founded to be heard. This article explains the scientific viewpoint of creation succinctly and without compromises.

A short but extremely well documented account of state versus federal power in a local case that gets international attention for its connection to immigration. Great outbound links and concise presentation.
