Just watched a video about Elon Musk and Twitter. When it was finished I glanced through the comments and one phrase caught my eye. It was claiming that before Musk Twitter wasn't unbiased It said, "{Before Musk...) Twitter showed bias towards both sides". I wonder if the person who posted it realises that it is LITERALLY A DEFINITION OF "UNBIASED".

This sounds impossible. Bias is by definition favoritism towards one thing or another. One cann't be bi-biased. oh, wait - if you swing both ways...

True but being accused of bias by both sides only shows that you are actually unbiased. You see it in the UK with the BBC. The right wing accuse it of left wing bias while the left wing accuse it of right wing bias. Sounds fairly unbiased to me.
