The myth of impartiality

According to the Drudge Report, Good Morning America producer John Green is “mortified” that he was caught with his pants down in an email he wrote to others at ABC that President Bush made him want “to puke.” Frankly, Green should not be so upset. This is his opinion and he’s welcome to it in a free society. The idea that he would be impartial is simply a myth. Last I heard John Green was a human being. Only machines (so far) are impartial. In fact, it’s good viewers of ABC are informed of the opinions of those producing the network’s shows. It gives those viewers much more ability to evaluate what they are seeing. Thanks, Mr. Green!
