For a very long time, I thought that one needed to be balanced and unbiased in all things at all times. This, interestingly enough, is in and of itself unbalanced and biased!
Consider journalists for a moment. In the not-too-distant past we looked to newspapers to bring the facts and leave opinions to the editorial pages. Today, we tend to align ourselves to newspapers and media outlets that reflect on us. We want opinions and we want points of view. We want the facts, but only when they fit our worldview, our reality.
Maybe this is because no one can be truly unbiased. We are all biased by our very being.
