Interesting points. I especially agree with Lopez:

The objective media thing is a charade. I’m not sure what the point of pretending otherwise is. We’d have livelier pieces to read and more serious debates, I think, if everyone just became an honest reporter/editor/publication. Report and do it with your slant. Just stop pretending to be doing otherwise.

Everyone’s got a belief system. If reporters and editors would admit it, then we could do a better job watching for it and catching it before it goes to print.

Here‘s what happens when nobody notices a bias because everyone thinks the same way.
