What if you just paid someone to do a caricature of a flat earther (CNN style) so you can make fun of him? Would that be less or more biased?
Your whole example simply doe ...[text shortened]... n't the sort of situation where bias is an issue given that you already know the correct answer.
prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.
A disposition toward factual and logical honesty wouldn't count as "bias", since there's nothing unfair about doing so.
