The story gave a lot of information and numbers but did not quote anyone besides the mayor.Since it was not the mayor who came up with these numbers it seems like another source should have mentioned. Also there is a lot of information that I believe to be fact but I wish it had been presented in a more interesting way. The story doesn't capture the readers attention , instead it just spews facts at you and ends quite quickly.
i thought the story was well written and interesting. The writer clearly cites Obama and students but besides that avoided any other sources. There was also no numbers in the article. It would be nice to see an average on how many children are considered obese and then give exact numbers on the plan to decrease obesity. While entertaining I though there could have been more information
This story gave a different view than others that I have read. It really discussed how the project would help the people of Baltimore by giving them jobs rather than just say that the line will build up the community. If jobs are granted to the people of the surrounding the area the project my be a better plan then intended.
I found this story on the "Highway to Nowhere construction to be one of the more balanced and used more sources that other stories that I have read. The story gave the facts and sources opinions without the writer interjecting his own opinion.
I thought the story was interesting because it focused on a specific person who had lived in the area now and then. The story told a lot of things once were though and focused not as much on what is to come. People gave thier opinions but I felt there could have been more information.
The story seems very opinionated and doesn't cite many sources. The story seems more like a complain piece rather than a piece of factual information. The story seems to just insult the city's plans and doesn't really quote anyone any side of the story. I also found that though the story is newer than others on the topic it offered very little new information.
I thought the story was well written and intriguing but I also found it to a bit biased. The writer's view definitely were exposed in the piece and the sides of the story seemed a bit unbalanced. When the writer discussed the city's plans he referenced articles and press releases but never actually spoke to anyone but when he wanted to reveal the side that he clearly felt stronger for he actually talked and met up with people. It seemed like he put more effort into the second half of the story
This story had many opinions and little facts. None of the quotes came from an expert or any one whom I would consider a trustworthy source. The article also came off racist making sure to label people by thier color and ethnicity. Also none of the thoughts seem to come full cirlcle and rather were very scattered and all over the place. All in all the article was an opinion piece that voiced the views of anngry locals.
I thought this story was written well and captured the audiences attention. The story made the reader care and it did so by using facts , numbers and well collected quotes. The story makes the reader think and consider an issue that may not have phased them before. Everything flowed together and transitioned well. I enjoyed this story :)
