Wanting both parties to be hit by a bus does not make one non-partisan. Joel Send a noteboard - 09/02/2012 10:05:28 PM
No one is free of bias, but a little effort can go a long way toward preserving non-partisanship by minimizing the effect of bias on tone and presentation of bare facts. Note: I claim no expertise there, and will not pretend I bother trying much anymore; I am far too cynical now. That may be why I do not object to editorializing itself (though I often object to specific editorials) so long as commentary and interpretation remain distinct from actual events. Stating Japan bombed Pearl Harbor is completely non-partisan; blaming isolationist for leaving the US unprepared or hawks for provoking the attack is not.

Also, kudos for linking to a source, and a fairly non-partisan one as well. - 09/02/2012 01:33:07 PM 207 Views

You lost all credibility in the first line of your post. - 09/02/2012 04:49:23 PM 203 Views
The subject line didn't help. *NM* - 09/02/2012 06:04:11 PM 91 Views
But it added some flair to the discussion! *NM* - 09/02/2012 07:46:47 PM 84 Views
You actually think any of us has 'credibility' anymore in regards to neutrality? *NM* - 09/02/2012 06:46:13 PM 77 Views
It's one thing to have a bias. - 09/02/2012 07:28:51 PM 158 Views

Why? Have you not been paying attention? - 10/02/2012 02:03:43 AM 122 Views
If I am not satisfied with Romney then my Plan B is to not vote. - 10/02/2012 10:58:34 PM 123 Views
How does that help anything? Except Romneys election chances, of course. - 11/02/2012 01:08:22 AM 93 Views
Bullshit. - 11/02/2012 04:29:31 AM 132 Views
