We hear fair and balanced is a desirable approach to problems. Turns out this is a false balance when the issue under discussion doesn't address an underlying principle.
One side can be wrong
It is seductive to state we're exploring new ways to do things ... in the absence of the underlying principles that would guide the explorer to a possible new way to doing something. In the absence of any principles, any conjectures should be rejected. Without this approach, any conjecture, any unsubstantiated opinion, can be treated as equal to principles and evidence-based processes. This is not a good way to improve processes.
