Bias/Biased

Can we all agree that parts of speech matter? Yes, adjectives can act as nouns, and nouns can act as adjectives, but for the most part, parts of speech aren’t randomly assigned with no import.

“Well, you just like such-and-so because you’re bias!”

Just… No.

I’ve seen gems like that all over comments sections of late.

I want to be shocked by this dearth of intelligence, but in a world where we say “he text me last night” instead of “he texted me last night” how can I be surprised?

bias, n. a particular tendency
biased, adj. having preference

While Fox News is biased towards the GOP, Megyn Kelly seems to show no bias for Donald Trump.
