This is good journalism because it is very relevant today as the elections for Baltimore mayor are coming up. However, it would have been better sourced if the journalist were to actually get word from Mfume himself on why exactly he does not plan on running for mayor. However, D'Adamo is still a significant political source and trustworthy. If one was to write a more enterprising story though, words from Mfume would have been more appropriate.
