An interesting choice of words by the definitely unbiased BBC re the New York primaries

As we all know the BBC are completely unbiased in their reporting. So what an odd choice of words in this article on the New York primaries results. 

'Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in New York while Hillary Clinton has triumphed in the Democratic race.
With almost 95% of the results in, Mr Trump is leading with just over 60% of the vote while Mrs Clinton has just under 58%.'

Donald Trump 'won' whilst Hillary Clinton 'triumphed'. An interesting choice of words for an unbiased news reporting organisation. It can't be based upon vote share in their respective contests as 

Donald Trump won more of the share of the Republican vote than Hillary Clinton did of the Democrat vote.
