Re: Happy Inauguration Day (and beyond- The Biden Presidency Thread part I)

I'd also love to know how they set what zero bias is. Like what is the platonic neutral stance? Yeah, because even the most unbiased media outlet is still making very distinct choices about WHAT to cover. Like, that's probably..

Re: Happy Inauguration Day (and beyond- The Biden Presidency Thread part I)

Quick round-up of thoughts: * Yesterday... the entire day... was just pitch perfect. Biden's speech was important and hit all the right notes. But, overall, I couldn't turn away from any of it.

Well, to be clear, you still have to cut stuff and mix stuff and all that.
