Default Fox News has a bias? I thought they were fair and balanced?

weird, there seems to be a bit of a right wing bias over there.

Along the same lines, there are people here in Ann Arbor who insist NPR is not left bias. Have you ever heard their stories. They almost always have a slant to the left. I don't mind so long as you call a horse a horse.

that is why the ratings on that station continue to fall. The majority of people are leaning towards the middle. Fox news is still the most watched station however.

I think everyone knows that fox news is more conservative than most networks and I don't need another news network to tell me that. And I don't go by party affiliations i know people that are conservative that are and vice versa.
So, the point is the news networks are calling fox biases when they are in fact also biased. Hence pot calling kettle black.

I wouldn't care if they would actually say it, but they keep peddling this "Fair and Balanced" crap. Yeah, you're entering the No-Spin Zone...riiiiight...and you know what intelligent people can see through that stuff, but then you get these lesser intelligent guys that keep repeating the GOP talking points like little Bill O'Reilly dolls...that's what annoys me.

Agreed, but don't try telling me the other networks don't acting like their shit doesn't stink either. Yea thats a triple negative.

And that's EXACTLY what I dislike about living in Ann Arbor with the NPR crowd. They spout out stories from NPR like it is the most un-biased accurate information.

Well CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC aren't known collectively as "the DNC press corps" for nothing.

As a former head of CBS's new division said (I'm paraphrasing here - I'll try to find the exact quotation): It's our duty to interpret the news for the average viewer - the world's too complex for them to understand it as well as we do.

Think for yourselves - question all media.

And you consider yourself one of the "big people".

I've yet to read anything intelligent in any of your posts.

i did't interprut that as saying they couldn't delve into side stories or thats all they could report? It isnt blatant censoring their reporters. Lots of producers direct the reporting teams. I dont see a problem. Maybe you are objective when you watch tv but i can hardly watch any news with out yelling at the tv cause of the shameless blatant pandering to the left, to the point its a joke and makes a mockery or journalism and makes "journalists" opinion editors who just report what they think it out to be. You cant seriously be upset at this and enjoy reading that crooks and liars.

With all the crook and liar dems out there how many of them are on crooks and liars.com ? I never heard of the site before you started posting links but it sure seems to have an agenda. Just wondering how fair you really like your media. Or if you just like to be reassured what you already think/want is the truth. TV said it .... so it must be true !
