Bias? What Bias?

Britain's Independent, one of the pillars of the British far left (The other is the Guardian), slipped in an appalingly obvious swipe at the death penalty in what was ostensibly a news article.

The decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco dealt a new blow to the credibility of the death penalty in America after the mass commutation of more than 140 death sentences in Illinois last year amid increasing doubts, even among members of the US Supreme Court, that capital punishment can be administered fairly and safely.

So much for impartial reporting. I think even the most ardent opponents of the death penalty will see that the above quote is slanted in their favor.
