Try it this way:
Many people are less capable of being fair and objective in
discussion than others are.
People tend to ignore slips and incivilities in arguments that
support their own views, though they notice them eagerly in
arguments that cast doubt or aspersions on their defended position.

I don't really think that it matters which side they are on.
