If they report honestly they would have a liberal bias I suppose.
The irony of using bias to make a joke about bias.

So under that definition, is one biased if one appears to promote one person or group over another? And where do you draw the line between reporting on a particular group or person because they are media savvy and not reporting on someone because they are deemed to be insignificant by the news organisations editor?
I think this is often why the BBC is accused of being biased. Because they don't report something a particular individual or group deem to be important. Alas, the accusers of bias do not seem to understand that editorial decisions have to be made. Not every story will get coverage as the amount of space / effort is finite.
Agreed, though I'm not accusing the BBC of bias; generally they're very good at that.
But you have got other media, such as the Guardian and the Daily Mail which are openly bias and I'm just saying should something that tells the news be like that?
They could easily tell the news with the facts that make it up but they decide to put their spin on it to turn it to their agenda.
As a result, if I support the Mail's point of view I'm not going to read the Guardian because the Guardian is just going to insult my views and vice versa.
All I'm saying is, is there any need for this?
News TV channels are, generally, very good when it comes to balancing things out, it's other forms of media that aren't so much.
