The Phrase Fair and

BALANCED when applied to news reportage really bugs me. What’s the point of being balanced? We give equal time to idiots as we give to wise men? We place the same weight on ignorance and fallacy as we do truth?

Fair and balance is BS. And I don’t want balance. I want news that’s accurate. Honest. Founded in reality.

But Alger! You know there are two sides to every story.

There speaks someone whose “side” is probably in the wrong.
