National news comes from a variety of sources including the Associated Press and New York Times. All story information is properly sourced. Editorially, the Dallas Morning News always endorses Republican candidates, however in 2016 they did not endorse Republican Donald Trump based on the argument that “Donald Trump is not a true Republican.” A review of their opinion page also shows a right leaning bias in topic selection that favors the right.
