Bias - Today's editorial

Bias -

The editorial is a reaction regarding ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs' alleged bias against Fernando Poe Jr.'s presidential campaign. The allegation was made by the candidate's wife, Susan Roces during a live TV interview.

This is my favourite paragraph:

And thus we come to the blind side of perceptual thinking: we only see what we want or are conditioned to see. We do not remember our neighbor's hundred acts of kindness; we only notice the one unfortunate exchange of words. We do not notice the thousands of policemen doing their duty; we only see the cops who take bribes. That, sadly, is the reality.
