Nikki Haley suffers humiliating defeat in her own state. What comes next?

Why Troubling News:

Daily Kos is openly left-wing but they do not try to separate factual reporting and editorials. The article above is a good example. Right from the title, it is apparent the author is far from a fan of Nikki Haley. As you read through the article, he becomes increasingly negative towards the Republican Party, indicating that he's viewing the GOP primaries through a liberal perspective. He describes the state of the Republican Party as "wreckage." He also described the Republicans who initially competed against Donald Trump and turned around to endorse him as bootlickers. He cites some articles to support his claims but leaves certain statements without any citation. For example, he wrote that everyone predicted Nikki Haley would lose her home state by a wide margin but does not cite any election forecasters to back it up. It leaves the audience assuming the author is right. The article ends with a call to action, "Sign the petition to news media: Trump is a clear and present danger to democracy."

The author discusses how the delegates in the party worship Trump and would support a candidate that the former president anointed. While it does an okay job covering Haley’s loss in South Carolina, it uses language that is far from impartial. It talks about how she got “clobbered”. This is very pointed language, especially considering she still got a good chunk of the vote. I feel as though it makes it sound like Haley is more of an outcast in the GOP than is actually true. There are many in the party who still agree with her. The article would also be much better if it provided opinions about Trump’s win from Haley voters. The viewer would likely want to know what these moderate conservatives think. Read Less
