As for the article. Unless it's an opinion piece, there should be no personal political points made in the news. And that's what he did. Now, defend that.
From your original post, the part that most "upset" your "bias" meter was;
Yet Mr. Jindal, with his decisive victory on Saturday, appears to have overcome a significant racial hurdle that blocked him in 2003, according to analysts: race-based opposition in the deeply conservative northern and eastern parishes of Louisiana that once supported the Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
I've provided 18 links and one graphic from The Southern Poverty Law Center Hate Map
BRussell also provided a definitive link titled Study Suggests Bias, Ex-Duke Voters Defeated Jindal
linking Jindal's loss in 2003 to David Duke type supporters.
So that's 20 links in support of those three words that I"ve highlighted above, I've have already done a preliminary analysis from the OBJECTIVE data which appears to fully support those three words highlighted above.
It is fairly obvious to me, that this election will appear in a future peer reviewed political science journal, similar to what happened in 2003.
And I'd fully expect it to present most of the verbiage that I've already presented, but with a peer review and editorial process, and of course will be written by expert analysis's from that region with a fuller understanding of the local's politics and demographics and history. It will also be written in a much clearer format, than I could ever do.
So at this point I "could" do what others with much more experience in political science (but perhaps less expertise than myself in statistical analyses) will do anyway. I could do a complete detailed statistical analysis myself, here for you, clearly demonstrating those three words outlined above are factual and correct. That that entire sentence is factual and correct.
But, from past experience in these threads, I already know that that exercise is futile, it will fall on deaf ears as it were, to the thread population in general, but specifically to those individuals that already hold "certain" biases!
\ Hint, hint.
And all I have from your end is your POV that that statement is "biased."
Have a nice day.
