Summary: The article talks about Ann Romney comparing Mormon mission trips to military service. What's New: The article emphasizes Mitt Romney's wife, Ann Romney, and her voice on the matter of her and her family's faith. Balance: The reporter has somewhat of a neutral voice when talking about the Mormom faith: "Mormon trips are voluntary, non-violent trips focused on proselytizing about the Church of Latter Day Saints." Transparency: The reporter gives information from the group, the American Conservative Union and incorporates The View's interview with Ann Romney.

Summary: This article shows that the African Americans/black population is subjected to being the target for the marriage amendment fight. What's New: The article offers a new viewpoint from the African-American community on the debate over same-sex marriage. Balance: The reporter managed to use both sides and incorporate them into the article. The reporter invloves the NAACP President Ben Jealous and his view that same-sex marriage should be allowed: "the notion that this state would create an amendment to its constitution to revoke a human right should send a shudder down the spine of all of us." and the reporter also used Rev. Jerry McAfee, president of the Minnesota State Baptist Convention view that supports the amendment: ... More »

Summary: This article says that Romney's main focus is on the economic issues while Obama has an emphasis on a mix of economic and social issues; resulting in a stronger support among women for Obama. What's New: This article brings in a discussion of women saying "I'd rather live with a president who struggles with the economy but cares about people" Balance: The article touches both conservative and liberal perspectives. I feel like it does cover up Romney's recent mishaps like his opposed viewpoints towards abortion by using his wife as an example to "vouche for him before female audiences." Transparency: The reporter gives actual quotes from women on both sides of the debate like Shirly Jackson from Red Hat Society. The ... More »

Summary: This article talks about women's issues and where each presidential candidate stands on the issues like abortion and contraceptives. What's New: The reporter, David Crary, really aims to help the readers understand the significance of what these women's issues are and how we could be affected if we are denied free access to contraceptives and other healthcare. Balance: The reporter does a good job at showing both sides of the issues. He highlights both candidates positions on women's issues. "President Barack Obama supports access to abortion. His health care law requires contraceptives to be available for free for women enrolled in workplace health plans. Republican Mitt Romney favors limits on abortion, though he ... More »

SUMMARY: Reporter Ruth Rosen breaks down how women are an important piece to the presidential debate. WHAT’S NEW: The article elaborates how candidates should be focusing on women equally to other issues because women are essential to the election, showing how the polls are greatly influenced by women voters. BALANCE: This story has 5 statistics, showing when the candidates discuss issues, if they include women and their rights, women voters are more likely to vote for that person. TRANSPARENCY: Ruth Rosen includes the Pew’s National Poll and brings in outside facts to bring her research together to support her piece. Evidence: "The greatest shift occurred in the Pew's National Poll which now shows Romney and Obama polling ... More »

Summary: The article talks about the presidential debate on equal pay for women. What's New: This article portrays the "right wing" voices on the controversial "equal pay for women" debate instead of pointing out that Romney did not answer the question of "should women be paid equal to men for doing the same job?" that was asked during the last presidential debate. They portray how Obama also has women being paid unequal to men under his administration. Balance: This article gives both voices on each side of the issue. But, it only gives statistics showing that under Obama women are being paid less. Transparency: The reporter gives only statistics supporting his claim like the salaries of men and women in the "Obama White House".

Summary: The article suggests that Mitt Romney does not support equal pay for women due to his unwillingness to answer the question during the last presidential debate. What's New: This article shows a differing viewpoint on whether or not Romney has a larger female voting population supporting him. Balance: This article portrays some balance, giving quotes from Romney and giving examples like the Roe vs Wade and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. But, the article shows the reporter's voice clearly. Transparency: The article shows both sides of the issue. It gives quotes from Romney and gives good examples supporting her claim like when she says "In April, on the very day he rolled out his three-progned strategy to woo women, ... More »

Summary: A pediatrician speaks out on the proposed marriage amendment. He acknowledges both stand-points and brings his own experience of working with children to demonstrate the reason why a "no" vote is the best choice for Minnesota children. What's new: This article gives a different view on how children are affected by same-sex parents. Instead of the typical "children won't grow up in a stable household", the reporter says "I can't cite a single case in which the presence of loving committed parents, heterosexual or homosexual, has negatively affected a child." Balance: This article shows SOME balance. The reporter acknowledges and addresses both sides of the issue. Transparency: The reporter gives research from AAP and ... More »

This story only portrays ONE person's opinion. It does not show any statistics and you can clearly tell this person is biased. The reporter uses heavily loaded words and phrases like "Same-sex marriage will only increase these influences and make it HARDER to promote traditional marriage." This statement is a clear example that the reporter does not have a neutral stance on this topic.

This story lacks balance. The reporter shows little effort in including all relevant perspectives on the Marriage Amendment. The reporter also uses a Canadian lawyer's (who is against same-sex marriage) quote at the end of this article leaving the reader feel that if Minnesota legalizes same-sex marriage, we will be living in a "scary time" like Canada.
