One Washington state Democratic elector won’t support Clinton, another won’t commit
Audience: Political By Standards. Source is appropriate for the intended audience, often time bloggers are completely political regardless of the party.
Authority: The blogger isn’t as authorize as the individual that is being spoked about who is Robert Satiacum, a member of Washington’s Puyallup Tribe. Who vows to not cast his Electoral College vote for Hillary Clinton. Which actually relates to my blog, “Doing the Puyallup! Tribe” because the tribe actually hosted Hilary Clinton in which they performed their culture and traditions for her along with questionnaires about her front for Native Americans. It’s completely ironic because I stated that she was a terrible candidate for the support of Native American yet they still decided to hold a gather for her and only to find out on the November 4th, that Robert Satiacum refuses to cast his vote!
Reference/Citations: No reference or citations listed in the article. Article also has no chat box for comments.
Scope/Comprehensiveness: With no references or citations, it isn’t completely comprehensive at all.
Currency: It was posted on the 4th, and updated on the 5th. However there is no tracking on how many times the post has been viewed or talked about.
Accuracy/Objectivity: His statements about Robert Satiacum is accurate. I had to research within other articles to find more resources/citations to back up the information (Link will be in citations) Objective however is clear, doesn’t stray from topic.
Credibility: It’s solid when searching through other articles that he’s writing the factual opinion of Robert Satiacum. But needs resources and citations.
