After criticizing some whole category of blog posts as fake news, biased or undercover advertising, I was about to add:

That being said, I must admit that this one article is quite interesting.

Is this construct correct? Should I use "this article in particular" instead?

    The construction this one article is just fine, and you can find similar examples all over the web. What made you think it was wrong? Nov 20, 2012 at 14:22

The construction "this one article" is grammatically correct. Its use gives emphasis to that specific article.

  • Since I can't comment on things other than my own posts yet, I wanted to respond to JSBձոգչ's question. I think that since "this one" is normally used as a pronoun for whatever the subject is, the OP was questioning the use of adding the noun after the pronoun.
