  Wikipedia:Neutral point of view - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We said that the neutral point of view is not, contrary to the seeming implication of the phrase, some actual point of view that is "neutral" or "intermediate" among the different positions.

An NPOV (neutral, unbiased) article is an article that has been written without showing a stand on the issue at hand.
In a neutral representation, the differing points of view are presented as such, not as facts.

 Meatball Wiki: NeutralPointOfView
The neutral point of view is considered by many as the fairest form of writing because it requires the elimination of the biases that naturally occur in writing; after all, all the authors are human with their own opinions and filters.
Not only should all points of view be explored to a degree that no one would disagree with, but it may be necessary to include reasonable descriptions of opposing viewpoints.
Of course the view is not necessarily neutral, it is consensual.

 Limitations of Wiki News' Neutral Point of View Policy | Echo Chamber Project
Wales said that the NPOV policy works best as a means to get a lot of people to collaborate and synthesize news from other primary news sources, but that it would be probably difficult for WikiNews to do much original reporting.
The NPOV philosophy seems to work well for historic topics where there is time for long deliberations over controversial issues, but coming to a quick consensus of neutrality in day-to-day news coverage could potentially water down the news.
In this context, being "neutral" means giving equal weight to all points of view even when the facts could clearly show that one side is completely wrong.

 Cornelius: Point: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
My initial thought was that, with Point, Cornelius had made an album not of songs but of machines: twittering little trinkets and gewgaws, clockwork formalist tricks, hooks, and grooves, tiny snazzy robots covered with push-buttons and blinking lights.
Point isn't really as like that as I thought, but let's pretend-- just for a second-- that it is: you couldn't possibly ask for anyone to do that stuff better than Cornelius does.
But the thing is that Point, like the IDM records it shares some of its formalist leanings with, gradually reveals itself to contain some song forms that are, without qualification, quite beautiful and expressive, and in completely non-trinkety ways.

 1. A Point (of View)
In well-crafted stories, the point may be a little less apparent than the moral of a fairy tale, and it might require some thought, but if the story touched you, chances are you can define some central points or the transformative realizations the author intended.
The point of this story may be that it is best to please your boss, but you can see also how a specific definition of the project’s intended uses drives your definition of the central premise, which then prescribes all of the editing decisions.
For most storytellers, couching the story in the first-person point of view, either throughout the story or as a frame around the story, is an invitation to hearing the story in a more personal context.
