Neutral Bias?

Caroline Baum reminds us that "Neutral Bias is an oxymoron."

She is correct — Neutral is the absense of bias, not a bias iunto itself.

Other noteworthy oxymorons:

Jumbo Shrimp
Pre-Heat
"with all deliberate speed" (i.e. "go quickly slowly")
anecdotal evidence
Larger half
deafening silence
Military Intelligence

The last example comes to us courtesy of George Carlin . . .
