How partial is impatiality?

When people and organisations refer to how impartial they are they are in fact not impartial at all.

We are all to blame for this. As historians, by education, Mr. Pike and I are cursed with subjective objectivity or objective subjectivity.
One cannot be impartial, objective or anything else that relates to an unbiased approach. This is because, as humans, one comes with presumptions, assumptions and values that conflict with the idea of ‘impartiality’.

So next time someone says they are impartial take their opinion with a large pinch of salt.
