CNN is a joke, Al-Jazeera is HUGE Muslim propaganda, MSNBC is HUGE liberal propaganda, and Fox News is middle of the road as far as bias. I find it funny that people consider Fox News biased, because they obviously didn't read it from the beginning since it has done a massive run to the left compared to when it started.

Dailymail.co.uk is also good for showing pictures that the MSM tries to coverup. They are pretty left leaning though being from the UK.
Eh....Breitbart is about the worst of them all as far as bias goes. They operate on the "broken clock is right twice per day" principal.

I don't know if the higher than expected quantity of Fox News viewers is as disturbing to me as is the lower than expected quantity of viewers of news programs like the PBS News Hour that provide more comprehensive discussions of the stories they cover.

All the best.

PBS Newshour, Frontline, and NPR, while they have some half-decent reporting, are definitely more biased towards one political party than the other.

Wasn't it Juan Williams who said the 'hypocrisy of the right is nothing compared to that of the journalists at NPR.' Paraphrasing, but that was the general idea he was expressing.

Also, I think people who criticize Fox news as biased, confuse editorial pieces (O'reilly Factor, Kelly Files, ect.) with their actual news service. Fox News does have a News program that reports contemporary news and is separate from the editorial programs. Not that I really watch Fox (or any news networks) that often, but it is worth pointing that out.

MSNBC, for example, though it has some news reporting, consists almost entirely of editorial programs (Chris Matthews, Maddow, Chris Hayes, ect.). And ABC, NBC, CBS have their own versions. So why Fox gets singled out for this, boggles my mind.

I guess certain political die-hards need a rallying cry.

Nobody asked that before that I can recall, but as I opened this thread I'll answer. Facebook isn't listed because I don't and didn't consider including it. Additionally, I didn't and don't care if Facebook is where one gets what one thinks of as news. Lastly, I don't look at my own Facebook account but once or twice a year and I don't even know what one might find there that can be considered news.

In my own experience, the "news" that I've found on Facebook is people whom I know telling me about stuff they did. Among the folks with whom I'm close enough to care about what they are doing, I don't need Facebook to know about it. The telephone is sufficient. LOL

Is Facebook news organized in some rational way? Is the content the sort of thing one might want when seeking facts about all manners of topics? (Please, don't "creatively" read my questions.)

All the best.

I was being sarcastic...however, Facebook actually does sometimes provide the news, in that, I share common interests with friends and they tend to post stuff that am interested in...does that count?

Also, I voted CNN and Fox News, if it matters

My mistake. I see the wink, but at the time, it didn't register. Sorry.

All the best.
