Bias or Opinion?

I would have to take issue with David Farrar's allegations of bias on the part of Russell Brown.

Russell's blog is his opinion and he does not pretend otherwise. Opinion is always, but unremarkably, biased. One is free to agree or disagree. It's silly to allege someone is biased when all they are doing is agreeing with their own opinions. Bias in a negative sense occurs when there is supposed to be some form of equal treatment of ideas, such as in The Listener or on National Radio.
