Control Your Bias as a Writer

When writing an article is it important to show all points of view?

When I write some articles I know I have a bias towards topics. This was especially true in my last article. As a writer though I try to present both arguments and allow the reader to form their own opinion.

From past bad experiences with the police I could have shown a strong opinion as to why I think Harper’s law is dangerous. As an advocate for young people I could have stated that the sentences were harsh for what was essentially a tragic accident. I didn’t I presented the facts and let the audience make up their mind.

Not all writers do this, but I believe it is important. I love nothing more than a debate with someone, but articles need to present both sides carefully. I may be in the minority here.

What is your opinion do you show bias in your articles?
