Opinionated and one-sided, as you might expect from an op-ed, this nonetheless lacks links, concrete evidence or the opposing point of view. Good information, good topic, but lacking enough information to allow the reader to make an informed opinion.

A collection of entertaining photos, but a misleading hed and complete lack of captions (context) make this an extremely poor effort at journalism.

Insightful look at what's going on in Egypt right now from a foreign press perspective.

Fantastic narrative. It's outside of the direct scooper of this story, but additional context on what's going on, and why would be helpful.

Good investigating, but hard to trust, and lacks a verification. It would be very helpful to tell us who did the report, why they're trustworthy etc…

Blunt, and pulls no punches. The piece does a good job of presenting facts and calling out hypocrisy.

Doesn't bother to link to or embed the actual speech. Crazy.

Links to Giffords polices, and campaign events are missing, but the piece does a nice job of quickly putting Giffords into context.

Solid live blog. Reports are timely and there is a very strong effort to credit sources and state only facts.

A fair job of curation, but in coming late to the story, and reporting only facts, there is a lot of context missing. …oh, and links would be nice.

States only the facts, but fails to provide some of the context that is available (who Giffords is, the state of AZ politics) or do any original reporting.

Well written editorial, but doesn't present anything new, and just touts the common view.
