The Siren Song of the Orange Ape

Why Troubling News:

This article covers the events of the State of the Union in a very biased way. From the title alone you can see that the article is going to be clearly anti-Trump. They call him an "Orange Ape". Once you delve into the article, you can see that the author uses more of these names. They call Marjorie Taylor Greene "Marge Trailer Park Greene". Further down, the author describes the Republicans as a bunch of middle schoolers and the Speaker Mike Johnson as a little man. They also say that those who don't learn the lessons of history are called Republicans. This article is worrisome because rather than focusing on Biden's speech and his message, the text is focused on being anti-Republican. To better cover the president's speech, they could have describe the facts in a nonpartisan way without adding their opinions or calling certain politicians names.
