Supreme Court faces its greatest test yet from Trump

Why Troubling News:

Even the title suggests the article would be very anti-Trump biased, further escalating in the article - sentences and phrases such as "Trump’s habitual refusal to accept the rules and results of elections" or "four-times criminally indicted Trump" shout it out loud. There are a lot of such passages to talk about but I would like to point out the ending of the article "Trump’s response will be filtered through his highly developed sense of injustice and suspicion of institutions of accountability and his often self-serving interpretation of the law." The author of the article here refers to the history. It might have happened but there is no specific reference attached. That is misleading. And how can the author predict the future? It is ok to mention one's ideas in an opinion based article but this one is not presented as one of those so some readers might take these sentences as facts which might be dangerous. The bias in this article is simply too obvious. As a reporter, the writer should always try to avoid personal opinions leaking in an article and leave some space for the reader to make his or her own opinion. But here, there is too much pressure to accept whatever the author thinks.

For example, the line “Trump repeatedly sets out to lean on or discredit institutions that can hold him accountable, restrain his power or contradict his incessantly spun alternative realities. He draws them into his vitriol and falsehoods in a way that has harmed their purported reputations for being above the fray,” uses emotional language and claims opinion as fact. This is definitely an issue for someone looking for objective news that does not have background information on the subject. Read Less
