This article is extremely relevant to the news today, and captures readers attention because, fights on the football field rarely happen. It is interesting to see the reporter stated facts rather than bashing the players for fighting. Also, the reporter offered enough information so that the readers understand not only the situation but also the background of the situation.

Overall I feel that this article was too long to keep a readers attention. There were good facts, and sources but some elements of the article should be eliminated to make it shorter. Also, I would recommend the reporter use more sources because they focused a lot on the ideas and thoughts of Farah which is nice but the story is not about him.

This story is relevant to our society today as the rate of obese people in the United States is currently rising. The idea that San Francisco is doing something to prevent obesity is important, especially if that is the area where you reside. The sources for this story are the people involved in passing this new law, and are credible active members of the San Francisco city counsel. This article somewhat reflects the mission statement of 7live news because it gives information that is relevant to the bay area, and to the issues of obesity in our country.

This article is literally exposing Brett Favre for the scandal he was said to be apart of. The story was found in the most popular news of 7 Live and is relevant because Favre is the quarterback of the Jets football team, and it is currently football season. This scandal could potentially hurt his career but also upset many fans. The sources who claim Favre has done seductive things, are from the woman who claim to be in a secretive relationship with the player. They may be credible sources, but have they have not yet been able to prove Favre actually committed this scandal. Overall., the article reflects the mission statement of sharing news that is relevant and sparks the interest of the public.

This article is effective in telling about Lebron James' personal goals and comparing them to other athletes who have achieved those same goals. Although the story was a intriguing, and informative I felt like there was not enough information given. There should have been quotes from various sources as well as background information to support the reporters' claims. This article was very interesting, and although it lacks some detail I would recommend it to other readers.

This article is about how the Cowboys have a slim chance of making it to the playoffs in the 2011 season. The main focus is on the quarterback,Tony Romo, and how he will not be playing football for at least six games or more due to injury. The story was not very effective, because of the fact that a football team is made up of many players, not just Romo. It is true that the quarterback plays a huge role on the team, but the story shows no faith in the other team members. There truly is not enough background information on the effects Romo previously had on the team's success, which makes the story confusing to those who do not follow the Cowboys' statistics. Overall, I would not recommend this story because of the lack of detail.

Juan Pablo Angel is portrayed as a humble, yet outstanding soccer player. There is not enough background information that gives the readers a true sense of Angel. However, the reporter does highlight his worth toward other soccer teams. The story brings enough evidence and perspective for each reader to fully understand the issue. A great example of this is how the reporter used quotes from every team interested in drafting Angel. Each team explained why Angel would be a great asset to them. Also, the article explains how the Red Bulls, the team Angel currently plays for, is making a big mistake by letting him go. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend it to soccer fans around the country.

This story shares information on Nancy Pelosi in relation to the upcoming election. The beginning of the article shares her background. The article then turns to the fact that some of her colleges do not support her. The story later goes on to explain how the lack of support does not wear down her focus during this election. The article clearly uses a variety of perspectives and background for readers to understand the issues of the story. For example, the reporter referred to Newt Gingrich as dealing with the same issue that Pelosi is currently dealing with. Also, the reporter gives facts on the democratic party and their impact on the election. Overall, the article was well written, but in the future I would advise the author ... More »

The reporter of this article may have had a few issues in finding the facts behind this story. There were multiple locations these occurrences took place and of course it is impossible to be two places at once. The reporter was able to gain information about other places by speaking to fellow reporters. Normally, the language barrier is an issue, but by learning the language, it was easy for him to overcome this setback and move on to more important matters. Overall the story was relevant and factual, but I would suggest for future stories that it provide more sources.

This article was well written and well scoured. However, there might have been problems the reporter encountered in gathering this story. This report was based on a man named Lyttle, but the reporter never got the chance to speak to him personally. However, she was able to speak to David, Lyttle's brother, who was slightly involved in the situation.Another problem she may have encountered is the clearly explaining a single story. The immigration office, Lyttle's family, and the prison all have different ideas of how Lyttle was treated. Overall, the author did a nice job of grouping together all of the stories and explaining them to the audience.

Sexual orientation is a huge matter that involves multiple stereotypes. This article does not necessarily portray specific stereotypes, but it does give the illusion that the child was picked on based on stereotypes of gays. The author did a good job of avoiding the stereotypes and sticking to the facts and the story line. I would say the story activates the thought of stereotypes that others may have on what could have been the issue, but in general the story was really careful not to make those stereotypes known.

Religion often has many stereotypes. This article shows how people's stereotyping has gotten the best of them. The mosque that was burned is clearly a stereotype of what some group believed of all the people in the Muslim church. The author successfully avoids naming stereotypes directly, but readers I'm sure can pinpoint them. This article does activate stereotypes about the Jewish people who were said to have burned the mosque. It gives them a bad reputation of hate toward other religions.

This article is important for the voters of the upcoming elections. I feel that the article does cross a few fault lines like race, class, geography and generation. Depending on where you are from, or what state you live in this Dream Act can effect you. Also, although you may not be an immigrant, depending on your race you might be mistaken as one. The different classes show whether this act will help you anymore than you can help yourself, and depending on your generation, this Dream Act may or may not pertain to you if you are not young enough.

This article deals with the fault line of geography. Depending on where you live will impact whether this activity will harm you. If you live in American it is an important issue, but it is more important to those who are actually being effected by these missile strikes. This is a good article, but it would be nice to read some more detail on the situation.

This is a good piece, because it is compelling as well as opens our eyes to the fact that maybe Afghanistan people have a right to be upset at Americans in their country. I know Americans are helping, but what about those people like Gibbs who give American soldiers a bad name? This is a great article because it really causes you to think.

This story is interesting, and gives an insight on "what not to do" but it is not an article that would actually benefit anyone. It is good for entertainment purposes as well as if your favorite team happens to be the Jets. As for an entertainment article it captured my attention the whole time, and I personally enjoyed reading it.

Overall, this article was not as informative as i would have hoped. There needs to be more facts on the issue, and more quotes of what the public is feeling on the issue.
