Can journalists really be unbiased? Can a news organization be considered to be free and clear of bias? I’m truly interested in knowing what you think. I can’t even think of a single news organization that doesn’t have some bias and I’m sick of the notion that they can and should. Why have we not seen a major news organization declare their bias? It would be truly awesome if under every authors name it said “I’m biased towards the left,” or similarily “…the right.”
Or maybe when a news organization hires people it would have a little checkbox on the application form.
Check here if you’re biased towards the left.
Check here if you’re biased towards the right.
And then maybe their slogan could say “85% biased towards the…”
Yeah, that would be better.
