"You provide a thorough discussion of knowledge and bias so that a reader unfamiliar with their relationship to each other should leave your essay better informed on the topic. In addition, you bring up some good examples to distinguish facts from biased statements in the news article. However, because you spend so much time in your essay defining knowledge and bias, you provide only light analysis of the article. Since your work is supposed to be centered on the article, you should shorten your paragraphs on knowledge and bias alone and spend more time commenting on content from the article. There is also a need to revise your paper to address writing convention errors. For example, there are a number of places where you've used the wrong word, such as "ore" when you mean "or" or "peace" when you mean "piece.""
