This is a leaked memo providing background on a reporter. Note the highlighted section. Even if what the memo writer penned is true, he shouldn't have typed it in a document. That is an opinion that should have been expressed only in words to the client. You can imagine what the reporter is thinking as a result of the accusation that she is biased. She will look all the harder to prove that she isn't. The memo might have been safe had personal opinion not been injected into it, and there was no reason for doing so. The facts speak for themselves. One's opinions should have been delivered separately, perhaps in a phone call.
