There are two sides to every story. Everyone seemingly understands that from a logical standpoint, but far fewer seem interested in relating both sides during transmission to a third party. For objectivity's sake - because I can usually very clearly acknowledge both perspectives and and the demarcation between the two - I endeavor to articulate not only my view point, but the other viewpoint as well to the best of my ability, almost to a fault. I do this because I'm not trying to convince anyone to take my side, rather to give them all the available information in order for them to make up their own minds.
If I've somehow gained an ally through misrepresentation, well that's no ally at all.
