Partisan politics and the 10-point must system

Boxing judges use what's called the 10-point must system to score fights. Each round, a boxing judge has to award 10 points to the fighter they think won, then score the fighter that they think lost the round a number less than 10. The worse they did, the lower the number (a tie is scored 10-10).

It's hard to find any non-partisan political commentary these days. Pundits will always claim their side "won" an issue, no matter what the facts say...they always give their side a 10.

What's important is how they "score" the other side.
