Above the Fray....but Not Really

I don't know how familiar you are with the work of Jon Avlon, but his big thing these days is pretending he's one of the only centrists out there, calling out both sides while sitting pretty in the middle with a big smug smile on his face.

Only problem with that is that his whole "above the fray" stance belies a bit of a right-wing bias. Indeed, Jon Avlon's work can be distilled to this sentence from his latest piece at the Daily Beast:
Neither side is innocent, but on matters of both style and substance, the left is coming out of this debate looking worse.
I knew you'd say that, Jon...
