A quick recap of the grading criteria: Check-minus if you you don't have BOTH the article topic and something about the angle or bias; check if you do both; check-plus if you manage to do both within one or two reasonably concise sentences.
Aside from that, here are the other things that you need to cover by the end of this phase:
- Language; how complicated is it? Is it objective or judgmental?
- Audience: age, interests, political leanings...
- Publication: country of origin, distribution area, international versions (i.e. europe.chinadaily, International New York Times).
