i've been reading at least 2-3 articles on the economist per day. i've started to notice a while ago, that most of the articles on the economist are very biased. the author is adamant about persuading the reader about something. reading the economist has become fairly easy now for me.

however, one thing i'm wary about is that in the TPRH verbal workbook, there are plenty of passages that are NOT biased at all and the authors take a very neutral standpoint. reading tons of economist articles makes it difficult to determine what the author's stance is in some of the TPRH passages because you become so accustomed to biased articles.

any thoughts on a more neutral source of reading material?
