Final Debate: Obama Scores a Win

Is it too late for voters to change their minds?

On Monday night, Barack Obama won a decisive victory over Mitt Romney in a debate that's unlikely to swing a lot of votes. The CBS snap-poll, which had given Mitt Romney a 24-point margin of victory in the first debate, found Obama winning the third and final contest by 30 points.

This story is about the final debate in the 2012 Presidential Election. Obama took a victory in the debate against Mitt Romney, although sources are not sure if it is enough to swing a lot of votes. The two candidates debated over foreign policy, finding Obama won the contest by 30 points. I find the journalist was fair, and the story was fact-based. Both sides to the debate were given, and the journalist did not take sides. The story also has solid links and references to its sources.

The article doesn't have fairness. Talks alot about the good of Obama and the bad of Romney. There isn't much stated about the good of Romney or the bad of Obama. The balance in this article isn't shown either for the fact that it only talks about one side of each Presidential candidate.

"According to Gallup, as the evening began, Obama led on the question of who voters trust to handle foreign affairs by a 12-point margin (53-41). " More »
