FWIW, I *like* a little editorial bias.
IMO, a news source should always have an editorial position of *some
sort*. The alternative, as far as I can see, is "he said, she said"
journalism. e.g. "today, Mr. X announced that the sky was green. Mr. Y,
however, disagreed and said the sky was purple." IMO, a good source of
news will editorialize and note that, in fact, virtually everyone else
agrees, and all reliable studies show, that the sky is blue, so both
X and Y are lying. ;)
