Upon reading this article, no clear bias toward either President Trump or the Iranian government is present. Despite the lack of blatantly obvious bias, there are certain components that can be interpreted as being conducive to hindering the credibility of Donald Trump. The first example of this is supported by the fact that even though Donald Trump claims that the money Barack Obama freed up during the Iranian Nuclear deal was used for terrorism, the article contradicts his statement. The article states that despite Trump’s claims that the money given to the Iranian officials by Obama, was used to finance terrorism, this claim could not be verified. When addressing Trump’s claim, the article reads, “Trump was apparently referring to the Obama administration's unfreezing of certain Iranian assets and payment of a cash settlement related to a legal claim on those assets that was negotiated in the wake of the Iran nuclear deal” (Vazquez 3). The use of the word “apparently,” shows that the author of the article has doubt about the validity of Trump’s claims, as form the connotations of the word “apparently,” it can be inferred that the author does not fully believe or understand how Trump’s claims could possibly be valid. Additionally, the article includes criticisms against Trump for his past actions against Iran, causing Trump to seem less credible in his efforts to sympathize with Iranian people. The article includes that the president had been previously accused of labeling all Iranians as terrorists, and therefore was cannot be considered a person who holds the best interests at heart. Finally, the graphic footage that is portrayed in the news report highlights the destruction that is associated with these protest. Therefore, by endorsing violent protests that have claimed the lives of over 12 people already, Trump is communicating his support for this bloodshed. This is a useful tactic of defaming Trump, as it insulates that he is complicit to mass the blood shed taking place in Iran, further emphasizing this point by including graphic footage of the protests to add a shock factor to the video portion of the article.Article 4: -have-incited-disruption.htmlThis article examines the recent tweets the recent tweets that Donald Trump made,
regarding the recent protests in Iran. To open the article, a quote regarding the Iranian ambassador’s thoughts on President Trump’s tweets is included. The ambassador referred toTrump’s tweets as, “Absurd , and crossing every limit” (“Iran says Trump's 'absurd tweets' have incited disruption” 1). Additionally, words of criticism towards Trump, by the UN security chief is also listed in the article. The article then goes on to describe the effects of the recent protests on Iran. It is reported that, “At least 21 people have been killed and hundreds arrested in Iran during a week of anti-government protests and unrest over
