I'm saying that having biases are a bad thing. If you are an intelligent, thinking person, then you will have biases. Anybody who claims to be completely unbiased is either too unintelligent to form their own opinions or a liar.
I agree we all have biases even if we don't realize it. When it comes to reporters, they should be professional and simply report the story whatever the facts may be, and keep their personal biases and opinions out of the story.
