Left-leaning peasants/activists???

“Abbott hits unfair” – Letters 9 Jan SMH uses the phrase “in this left-leaning letters page”.  Why is it so wrong and an accusation of fault to be left leaning?  Why is it OK, by elimination, to be right-leaning – such as Alan Jones, Andrew Bolt, Gerard Henderson, Paul Sheehan?
And why is it so wrong to be left-leaning anyway?  When did a right wing group ever achieve anything for anybody except for a narrow wealthy class of looking-back-to-the-good-old-days when they could expect to rule over the peasants. 
I am a left-leaning letter writer/blogger and I can assure you that the Letters Page of the Sydney Morning Herald is not really left leaning – I have trouble being published.
