Biased Blog – What Can it Be?

In the Conservative Post article written by anonymous author “AM”, “AM” gives incite through the article “Trump’s 5-Point Plan for Immigration is Precisely Why You Want To VOTE FOR HIM”, stating that Mr. Trump’s plan to end illegal immigration is exactly why people of America should vote him to be the next President on the United States. But is this article entirely trustworthy in a biased perspective? Within the text, author “AM” states that Trump’s 5-point plan from his book, “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again”, is to, “build a border fence… enforcing immigration law… end to cozy detention centers… opposing the dream act… end to “anchor baby” policies,” (AM, para. 2-6). As these are somewhat decent ideas to the controversy on toning down illegal immigration, this article is viewed through a bias by selection of sources because this article has been published to the Conservative Post: an obvious conservative support source. The author, anonymous “AM” is also docked as a non credible source based on the fact that he/she does not give his/her specific name, giving the audience a source with no evidence and or credibility. Another bias formatted throughout the article is bias by labeling, where Mr. Trump quotes that, “This wholesale abdication of a president’s constitutional duties is as shocking as it is foolish… Trump wrote of Obama not enforcing immigration law,” (AM, para. 3). and “need to… overturn Obama’s insane new ICE recommendations,” (AM, para. 4). Mr. Trump using such prominent and extreme language to make President Obama sound like a fool is a perfect example of bias by labeling: labeling the liberals as morons without bringing the conservatives into the picture, as well. It is important for the people of America reading articles like these to realize that not everything published is trustworthy through a biased perspective as well as a credible source. Whether it be politics or immigration: people should be able to identify when a source is telling the truth or simply trying to lure others into only how they see the world.
