Reporters Should Be Upfront About Political Beliefs — John Stossel

When I announced last week that I was leaving ABC for Fox, some readers complained about my “bias.” I replied: “Every reporter has political beliefs. The difference is that I am upfront about mine.”

Look at today’s burning issue: President Obama’s pledge to redesign 15 percent of the economy. Virtually every reporter calls his health care plan “reform.” But dictionaries define reform as “improvement.”
So before they present any evidence, reporters pronounce Obama’s plan an improvement. Isn’t that bias?
