Everyone has biases, and to expect different is to not understand human nature. That said, traditional journalists are rarely asked to cover a single political movement, so their biases aren’t in focus.

Bloggers, however, may well be asked to concentrate on a specific movement, but as you’ve pointed out, blogging is a conversation that involves measures of reporting, research, analysis, and opinion. To be an honest and effective blogger, Weigel had to make his biases known to his audience, so that the rest of the conversation could occur within the proper context.
