"And how can we get interview quotes reflecting those data points into inflammatory newspaper articles to balance out the bias?"

Well, let's not forget that the Hamilton Speculator is a business too. Its product is "readers" and its customers are "advertisers". I think you would find that the money paid by the readers cover the marginal cost of printing their copy of the paper but don't contribute much to profits.

So, that said, check out who the Spec's "customers" are; Overwhelmingly the ads in the Spec are placed by the providers of the necessities of "car culture" and "sprawl culture". Don't hold your breath waiting for them to start biting the hand that feeds them by taking an editorial stance that opposes "business as usual"
