In a similar way, Forbes magazine takes no position on the candidacy of Steve
Forbes, I am sure hardy har har

But what is wrong with the idea of the press being partisan? Last time I
looked, the First Amendment nowhere said that the press must be unbiased.
Journalistic objectivity is in fact a fairly recent ideal, and it would be a
terrible thing if the price of press freedom were that it is free to give
only just the facts, ma'm.
