H! I am going to write some freelance news and commentary for an online medium. Please look up http://guardianlv.com/. It seeks to provide very fair reporting, namely by offering both overtly left and right opinions equal voice. The strategy of trying to write one article without any bias, is usually an exercise in futility. News media that blatantly side with one viewpoint over another, may be honest in their bias, but ultimately the reader has to know that the medium is really just pandering to a demographic.

Also the articles are by policy, quite long. Except for braking news, all articles must be at least 500 words long, and have at least three sources.

I am writing in part to improve my business resume, though am tempted to do more as a journalist. For now, my interest is business related news. Please look up my article here: http://guardianlv.com/2014/02/facebook-at-sochi-olympians-and-sponsors-find-gold-in-social-media/

Thanks for the heads up.

I think the "with" at the end of paragraph three is not needed. Also, in paragraph five, "how many" should be replaced with "of" or something else. The topic is not within my realm of interest, but it is otherwise fine.
