It explains the differences between the videos clearly and shows the actual videos to back up what they say. Also lists some sources for their ideas.

Makes a valid point and exposes the Anti-NRA video with facts and the actual videos to support it. Also lists sources for support. However, there is some opinion in there when the writer says the video "makes Barrow look and sound like a man wielding a dangerous assault weapon"because that is not necessarily what everybody may believe but just what the writer believes.

Yes it is a good jounalism because of how they summarised how Anti-NRA Group's shameless editing tricks are explained in editing out all references in which barrow explains why he supports gun rights which includes his statement . And also it is a good journalism because of how to stimulate barrow campaign ad which is from last year, and perhaps leaving some viewers with the false impression that it was released after the connecticut school shooting.
