|The narrator's supposed bias

in consequence of the missive, You read the narrator differently than I do..., penned by Arnie Perlstein
In the passage in question, the narrator is reporting a conversation where Lizzy is not even present and which, as far as we know, was never even reported to Lizzy. Why would a narrator who had the "power" to know things that Lizzy did not know and to be places where Lizzy wasn't, have an opinion that was only colored by Lizzy's opinion?
It seems like when the narrator says something that you don't like, you attribute it to Lizzy's bias, even if Lizzy wasn't even "there."
