I'm doing a major clean-up of this page. Just fixed up the lede, and added appropriate sections. Next, I'll be spreading out the bunch of refs under the Vietnam War. Sonething else I've been unable to find are actual articles he has written, so perhaps it might be good to actually find some of those so that we have some primary evidence of his press work.

Wrong Philadelphia[edit]

The Civil Rights section incorrectly listed Pennsylvania in the list of states he worked in. The Philadelphia where the civil rights workers were murdered was in Mississippi, not Pennsylvania. (talk) 18:10, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Note, this is confirmed if you actually read the article in cite #4. (talk) 18:20, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the fix. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 18:22, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    I have nothing special to note concerning the prose quality. Regarding to the lead, it is short and does not give a summary of the topic which could stand as a consise encyclopedia entry on its own.
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    It is referenced, but some of the references lack much information, such as author etc. This is especially important for the books. Page numbers are preferred for books. Also, correct author information should be provided in all cases. For instance, the article from The Namibian is written by Namibia Press Agency/AP. Some references lack work/publisher -- where was the Dirck Halstead article published? etc.
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    Does it contain the major aspects of the topic? The article is pretty decent, make no mistake, but for a good article I believe the article contains a bit too little information. The bit on the Korean War is short -- mention directly that he was awarded the Heart for Korea service, if that's the case, and it should be sorted out why this (which should be linked to directly) writes "Leon Daniels". There is little on his career in Vietnam between 1966 and the 1970s. What was his standpoint in the Cold War, while being a journalist he seems to have involved himself on one side? Nothing about his work in the Dominican Republic. Not everything is understandable to the reader, for instance what made the ray piece so notable? Also, the information in the infobox should generally be present in the article text, such as place of birth, death etc.
  4. Is it neutral?
    No apparent issues.
  5. Is it stable?
    No apparent issues.
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    No, but this criterion is allowed to be overlooked if no apparent free image exists.
  7. Overall: On hold. Needs a longer lead and work on citation information. Should be fleshed out to give a presentation of the person. Geschichte (talk) 19:19, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Thanks for giving honest feedback. I'll be addressing these comments over the next week. I'm in university right now, and I have a busy few days ahead, but I should have some time to get on this. Again, thanks for the review. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 06:27, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

No edits to the article in over a month, so I'm closing this. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 17:08, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
