This story puts a new twist on women and how important they are in the election process. This article says that Obama's strategy to pursue women to vote for him has been telling them which issues they should and shouldn't care about for example birth control. However women are becoming more into the election and concerned about more than just birth control they want to know about the economy and more important issues. Overall they are saying this could hurt Obama in the end and his chance of winning. This article is bias since it doesn't show both sides of the issue. First of all the townhall where this article came from leans more right rather than left so it has a conservative and republican side to this argument. The author ... More »

Summary- This article includes reasons why women may not vote for Obama and how this might hurt his chances of winning the presidential race. What's New- Women are a huge part of the voters. Obama has been assuming that women don't care about substance when it comes to politics and they only care about emotional appeal, because of this Romeny has actually gained more women voters. Balance- This story has 1 survey from USA Today, and two ads from the Romney campaign. This could give ... More »

“But I predict that Obama will once again fail to realize that women struggling in a tough economy may appreciate both substance and style, but when push comes to ... More »

This story explains how Lindsay Lohan is supporting Mitt Romney because she thinks "unemployment is important". They notice that this is a trend that is happening. Most low information voters don't know a lot about politics so they will find a few things they like about one of the candidates and that's the only reason they will vote for them. They think Obama should be really worried about this because there are many voters just like Lindsay Lohan. This story is very bias. It talks a lot about how Obama's camp should be very worried but doesn't give the other side why Romney should be worried. This is an opinion piece that very much takes the republican, right winged side. This story could go the other way as well. People could ... More »

Summary: Townhall spent time focusing on the fact that Lindsay Lohan is voting for Mitt Romney because employment is important, she doesn't think the White House is handling the issue and she thinks that Mitt Romney would be better at handling it. What's New- They think that Obama should be scared because it takes so little for a low information voter to support a candidate. Balance: 1 quote from Lindsay Lohan, an analysis from a business insider, 1 quote from Dave Weigel. They also ... More »

“That arguably logical sequence is all that it takes for a low-information voter to support Mitt Romney. The thing is, there are millions of voters like her. That ... More »

This article explains that Romney is now 6 points ahead of Obama. Obama's team is now getting worried since the numbers are rising for Mitt Romney. There has also been studies shown that the candidate who is ahead three weeks before voting usually ends up winning the race. This article is very fair and isn't very bias. Even though they are saying that Romney is ahead in the election they are overall just stating the facts. They include good things about Obama and how he did better than Romney in the debate on Tuesday. This article includes many quotes, statistics, and polls. This article shows where the election is headed and gives the world an inside on who is in the lead and how the swing states affect that.

Summary- Fox news spends time focusing on the fact that Mitt Romney is 6 points ahead in the presidential election. What's New- The article explains that Obama should be worried about this. Reuslts have shown that whatever candidate is ahead three weeks before the campaign ususally wins. The only candidate who has came ahead to win the election from being behind is Ronald Reagan and that was in 1980. Balance- Tells the results of the National Gallup Survey, results of the Real Clear ... More »

“Though the president pulled off a notably more assertive performance at Tuesday’s debate in New York” “But Obama says he does have a plan to ... More »

After reading this article I didn't think it was good journalism. First of all it is extremely unfair and biased. It only shows one side. In this article it talks about why same sex marriage would affect other marriages. It doesn't give the other view on why it wouldn't affect other people's marriage. There was no balance what so ever. It was one view and one persons opinion. There was no outside sources to back up the author of this article. He should have included some quotes about his view. This would have been a better and more fair article if both sides were included.

Summary: The star tribune spent time focusing on why same-sex marriage would affect all of our marriage's. What's New: They explain many reasons why same-sex marriage is hurting other's marriages. They bring in the fact that same-sex marriage does not produce a safe enviornment for children and any change to the definition of marriage affects our marriage. Balance: This is very much an opinon piece. The person who wrote this article did not bring in any other outside sources to add ... More »

I think that this was an interesting article to read to see how the Catholic religion is split on which side they should vote for either for the marriage amendment or against it. I think that after reading this I thought it was balanced. It had pretty equal amount of quotes on both sides of the issue. Although I did think it was a little bit biased because they focused more time on the anti-amendment group. To make this story better they should have spent equal time on both the anti-amendment group and the group that is for the amendment. I also thought it was good that they used more recent article cites in this article it makes the story more relevant and up to date.

Summary: The star tribune took the time to look at the Catholic religion and how they feel about same-sex marriage. What's New: The catholic community is split on what they should vote on the amendment, some are wanting to vote yes while others are wanting to vote no. Evangelicals are not having a problem with this divide. Balance: They story overall has 6 quotes. 1 comes from a catholic official, while the other 5 are coming from opponents and outside researchers. This article is ... More »

The different graphs that were shown were very interesting. I thought that liquor would have been a higher choice than wine. People my age are definently bear drinkers so that didn't surprise me that it was the preferred beverage choice.

Isn't the entire presidential election a lie? It seems as though this news story is very bias. Obama and Romney have both been accused of lieing and telling the world things that they are going to do and it never really happens. I don't think you can pin point all these lies on Romney.
