I am starting a GA review of this article

Great! I'm looking forward to working with you. Cheers. PrairieKid (talk) 18:47, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Same here. It looks pretty good overall. Sincerely, North8000 (talk) 19:26, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay... I've been very busy with work/school. Thanks for the patience. PrairieKid (talk) 17:55, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Review discussion[edit]

A couple of thoughts / questions regarding the Benton incident material. Two revolve around current reference #27. First, while this is a problem with the source is that #25 & #27 are the same article from the same source, but two different web pages where they give two different dates. (April 20th & 21st) #27 is just the first few paragraphs from it and then links to the other page (#25). Second is that #27 is given to support the "hypocrite" statement but there is nothing about that in there. That leaves only #26, an op ed piece which actually makes the accusation to support the statement that "Some have labeled Benton a hypocrite" which is pretty weak, particularly for a BLP situation, and also a primary source for the statement in the article. (all of the references numbers are the numbers as of this writing) Sincerely, North8000 (talk) 20:07, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Done: I'll change the source, and rearrange the content to better represent the information. PrairieKid (talk) 17:55, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

The statement "Many have come out in support of Rivers, who claims that Benton was harassing her and calling her a "weird, weird lady" prior to the altercation." looks unsourced. Particularly important as the statement is that there was much support for a strong accusation against Benton. Particularly important in a wp:blp situation. Sincerely, North8000 (talk) 20:21, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Done: Fixed above.

The lead should be a summary of what is in the body of the article. There was some info or more detailed info in the lead that was not in the body. I added that material to the body. North8000 (talk) 01:42, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

GA criteria final checklist[edit]


  • Meets this criteria. North8000 (talk) 01:42, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Factually accurate and verifiable

  • Meets this criteria.

Broad in its coverage

  • Meets this criteria. North8000 (talk) 01:43, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias, giving due weight to each

  • Meets this criteria. North8000 (talk) 22:34, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute

  • Meets this criteria. North8000 (talk) 18:40, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Illustrated, if possible, by images

  • Meets this criteria. Has one image. It is a free image so no article-specific use rationale is required. I think one is sufficient, but 1-2 more would be better. Maybe a picture of the I-5 proposed bridge? North8000 (talk) 20:16, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I'll see what I can find, but I don't know if there is anything out there. PrairieKid (talk) 17:55, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Added image of the I-5 bridge and of Don Benton.
Cool. North8000 (talk) 22:32, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Updating, Has three images. No non-free images, so no article-specific use rationales are required. North8000 (talk) 01:20, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
