George Santos says he’ll run for Congress again. Good luck getting on the ballot!

Why Troubling News:

The author, David Nir, provides a biased perspective on the news of recently-expelled congressman George Santos announcing he's running for Congress again. The expediency bias in the title, "Good luck getting on the ballot!" shows liberal bias because the author laughs at Santos's plans. The tone makes it clear that the author does not like Santos and the last line captures it perfectly, "Well, if there's one thing Santos is familiar with, it's failing to hold up under scrutiny." An unbiased article wouldn't have these opinions regarding Santos, the tone would be neutral, and diction would simply stick to the facts at hand.
