    So sad, so true, and so funny (albeit in a dark humor sort of way). And that’s why I get my news from blogs, where people are open about being biased!

    with rare exceptions, i think that “lack of bias” also means “lack of (com)passion” about a particular story, which means the desire to get to the heart of the truth is probably lacking as well.

    Sounds like every single corporation in existence.

    “How to grovel for a meager existence by lying to yourself about a job where the company lies to itself.”

    Hey, I think I’m going to go incorporate myself so I can get some of my rights as a person back…also, if somebody sues me, I’ll be a corporation against an individual person…the Roberts court will back me up every time!
