It isn’t that news outlets slant their reporting that bothers me. I just wish they’d be honest about it, so we could take the slant into account. In times past, newspapers were very open about their ideological leanings. Yes, many news outlets have a liberal bias, and others have a conservative bias. That’s fine. But don’t try to tell me you’re being fair or balanced when clearly neither is true, because frankly, it’s insulting.
