Evan Falchuk's page

Hello KristenM,

Thank you very much for helping me work on the Evan Falchuk's page. I am delighted to contribute to the candidates profiles. I regret, however, that you took out a lot of the news that I have put up previously. I understand that you update from Google News, but Google news does not necessarily provide all the new publications about the candidate, nor do the links often have a lot to do with the candidates page. While maintaining Google News feed is important, I would like to also be able to add articles that address the specific candidate on the page, so the voters could be precisely informed on everyone current profile.

Another big problem with the Google News feed on Evan Falchuk's page is that he is not very notable right now, so all the news that is written about him does not appear when you search "Evan+Falchuk+Massachusetts+Governor" as apposed to other party affiliated candidates.

Hey Kristen, I have been looking over Evan Falchuk's wikipedia page and it appears that there is a function that goes over the Race background. While it's a good idea in theory it falls drastically on execution. If you were to read what is it about, you would see that not only is it bias towards Democrats, but in addition half of it is dedicated to Dan Wolf, while staying on Evan Falchuk's page! I understand that ballotpedia has a small staff at tried to compensate that by somethings automatic, like news updates, but this sort of reporting is biased and unnecessary. I think that "Race Background" should be taken off until it is properly fixed or a new function is created. I will be more than glad to help you on that project. Thank you very much.
