So the farther to the right you lean the closer you are to the facts? Going to assume you didn't mean that.
Right, did say that and didnít mean that

So you move to the left of the right and move to the right of the left to get the facts. That puts you in the middle also known as an I.  :)

They should have left out "fairly and down the middle" and it would have been accurate.

Most Journal reporters attempt to cover the news fairly and down the middle, and our opinion pages offer an alternative to the uniform progressive views that dominate nearly all of todayís media," the note stated.

I know you believe that news is news, ie just the facts, and everything else is categorized as opinions by talking heads. I think this highlights that even the media acknowledges that the line is blurred, and even news pieces are presented with biased spin.

ETA: I think this is not only the fault of the media, but of society as a whole. Media doesn't make news; they report it. If they can only source their info from biased places, it skews the entire organization, not just the opinion pieces. See the quotes below:

Quote
The writers alleged that their colleagues in the opinion section were making their own jobs difficult, noting that some of them had been "told by sources that they won't talk to us because they don't trust that the WSJ is independent of the editorial page."

Quote
"As reporters, we have been told over the years to seek more diverse people as sources, given their overall lack of representation in our news coverage. But as long as opinion in its current state is part of our brand, we will face difficulties recruiting diverse talent and building trust with sources," they noted. "It's understandable why someone who reads about system police racism being a 'myth' in the WSJ might not trust our newsroom to be fair, honest or welcoming."

Cue the US media outlet echo chambers.
