The national news is mostly covered by the Associated Press and also Texas media such as the Texas Tribune. All stories are properly sourced.

Editorially, they cover both sides but do tend to slightly favor the left with Op-Eds such as this: Texas GOP leadership must root out racial bias and religious bigotry for the party to succeed.
