    Sheik, thank you for the reply, we shall let this stand as evidence of what this thread REALLY was all about. Just as I stated it was.
    Wow, yet another one declaring victory, this time, with out even responding. You must have had that victory in your head. Too bad it never made it to the forum.

    You slam Fox as false news for having Republican Conservative commentators for editorial pieces yet claim ABC, the same ABC News that hired Clinton's mouth piece as a Journalist is centered reliable news.

    It's more then just amusing.

    I think I like you. When was the last time we had one so easy to dismiss and mock as you?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is nothing more than a Conservative whining that ABC is biased, but not actual evidence of it. Regardless, this is a specific incident that may or may not be bias. I'm not talking about specific incidents of bias. I already agreed with another gentleman that all news agencies suffer bouts of isolated cases of bias on occassion. I'm talking about systemic bias, which I believe is the case with Fox and I believe is the case with MSNBC.

    What? It's ABC's fault that Palin made an idiot of herself? She thought the Bush Doctrine was George Bush's "world view."

    This article is about Michael Moore, not ABC.

And like your first example, even if you consider it biased, it's just a specific incident of a reporter being biased. It's not indicative of the network being biased systemically.

    This was a valid citation on your part. This was a case where someone working for ABC confessed systemic bias from the network. But to his credit, he also worked to rid his news agency of what he called, "old media" bias.

    Fox News not only flaunts its bias, it does nothing to rein it in.

    So having jumped in on this late, and having read the OP, what does Peter Jennings' bias have to do with two presidential contenders being former commentators for Fox News?

    Look at all the blogs and conservative sites calling ABC biased. The irony meter is pegged.

    I'm sure there's bias on both sides, but isn't the issue of this thread really about a conflict of interest?

    It seems pretty cut and dry to me. Conservative or liberal, why is there any argument that Fox News should suspend these contracts? I don't know how this thread devolved into **** slinging like monkeys at the zoo...

    I don't care much for Lehrer but if you like him it really doesn't matter, and the same is true for Sheil Yerbuti enjoying ABC. The only thing I find interesting is that Fox News really inspires strong emotions from those who lean towards the Left, and their complaints usually tend to be non-specific.

    To each his own, I reckon, and we can learn whatever we can from Jim Lehrer, ABC News and Fox News to better debate each other on these boards. That's when whatever we learned from whatever we've watched takes on more value.

    Funny, but I did not even mention FOX news, and in fact watch it on occasion.
