Here are my thoughts on this newsroom from a quick review:

As on other newsrooms, the author listed on the byline is not always the same as the author of the piece listed elsewhere, while it would be ideal to fix this, as long as the real author is unambiguously identifiable, I think that it is acceptable. This newsroom is clearly driven by an agenda, however, they are clear about this and I think that it is acceptable. However, I am not sure whether an appropriate separation exists between their factual reporting and opinion contact, such as and where a factual report is made and then opinion content is given including unverified claims. As a result of the presentation of these unverified claims alongside factual reporting, I recommend that this newsroom be rejected unless significant changes are made.
