In twenty, a hundred, a thousand years from now schoolchildren will be studying the impeachment of Donald Trump and wondering just how that crazy bastard managed to get himself elected in the first place
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
Some news outlets strive to be impartial even though they may exhibit some bias, and those are the ones to go for, I think.
unbiased showing no prejudice for or against something
impartial treating all rivals or disputants equally
Unbiased is stronger than impartial, one can be impartial but still be biased.
You can often detect efforts to be impartial by the way in which an article is written, where facts or opinions contrary to the headline occur very early on in the article, in the first or second paragraph. Articles attempt to show both sides of the story, and with equal weight. It is this impartiality that gives a fair view of the news, in my opinion, rather than a lack of bias.
But so often impartiality leads to confusing the readers into thinking it is a more disputed topic than it actually is. Such as giving the 3% of experts who disagree with the majority an equal voice to the 97% who all come to another conclusion. The reader can easily believe it is a 50/50 situation in such cases.
I was having a "discussion" with a guy yesterday who was lamenting the "media bias" against Trump, yesterday. His argument was that Trump was not a misogynist because he'd hired a woman to be his campaign manager. Somehow that balanced out all the other, negative things he'd said and done against women.
