On Press Conference

I read a press release from the white house of the president discussing free trade at a hotel in Miami and compared it to the coverage by VOA news. The coverage of the president's conference is pretty basic. The president went over how he thinks trade agreements with Columbia, Peru, and Panama would be really great, and the coverage provides his main points for his support. The reporter made the choice to report what the president said as fact, picking his strongest arguments for each country he discussed. The reporter also chose to include some voices of resistance and why they are against the agreements, which gives a nice balance to the article.
