Truly good journalists either are not biased or are able to keep their bias under control sufficiently well to not let it be a weapon to unfairly assist or unfairly injure any candidate they question.

In the quest to elicit the truth for the public and help give voters better insight into a candidate, journalists need to play a Devil's Advocate role and not play favorites.

We rarely see this - and we're not likely to see it in tonight's South Carolina Democratic presidential debate.
