Is there something wrong with societal bias? Especially towards ideals like personal liberty?

In journalism, yes.

The word "bias" probably should have tipped you off

Or not? One can be biased toward life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, or any number of generally-agreeable things.

I'm biased against death, and toward life. I don't generally feel a need to disclose that, since it's a widely-shared bias.
