This article is relevant,and addresses issues that the audience may not have been aware of, even if they are residents in Baltimore.It is important to know what is going on in your community. The writer does a good job of getting the audience interested in the issues,and curious for more. One thing I would like to see added is more opposing voices.

Though this story was factual, it was a bit one sided. It leans toward the side of the student protesters, but does not go into depth why this building is so important, and relevant today. The author tells you that this building has significant history, but many people would not deem this as a sufficient reason to keep it around. The pros and cons of bulldozing the building need to be shown more in depth and the writer should speak to other sources, including the developers who plan on making Lexington Square, and community members who are not emotionally invested into the historic site.

This piece showed multiple sides of the story, from the students to the contractors. It also used colorful language and gets the reader interested in what is being said. The article leaves a lasting impression. One thing that could be improved is showing us why this event is so important, not only locally, but globally.

I enjoyed this article, yet it did not show both sides to the story. More official quotes are needed.What does it mean if the building is bulldozes besides a piece of history being lost? This is a question that needs to addressed. I like that the writer addresses what the Preservation Committee was ding, it makes for a good follow up story.

The title of the story was misleading, however because of this title the author gets you to focus on a subject that needs to be talked about. Illegal immigration is a relevant subject, that affects us all, and it does need to be discussed in detail, however improvements could have been made. The piece was choppy, not well sourced, but I understood why the writer would think it was important.

This story was fact based because the information came from the census.It was informative because the information being presented could be relevant to many different people, however the journalist did not do a good job of showing the reader how this information on relate to them specifically. In general, this was a good piece but the writer could have added more reporting, instead of simply fact presenting.

This is good journalism because it states the issues, and has quotes and factual information to back what is being written. However, i believe it could be improved. the story could be taken further, and the people who are affected by this budget could be interviewed, to make the article more personable.
