    Thank you for your wise statement, and for not overlooking the reality like many of your "peers" on this forum.

    The real problem is that the majority of republicans and republican sympatizers do not know this.

    But they do.. All of them do, including Russia Today. All are biased. Its all about knowing they are biased, then try to mix up what you watch, and get real news from the least biased source. The least biased source I know is Euronews, a briefing style newschannels with half an hour of different type of news with NO OPINIONS mixed in, simply reporting the news.

    BBC is the best of the opinionated channels, because its fairly centered(although very western blind and anti-Russian/Chinese, and very narrow in trying to understand any other values and ideology than the western ones)...

    On a global scale, Fox is unbelievably ridiculous, it outdoes everything in bias. Even the most biased news of Russia today and the most nationalist news from Chinese central television, in comparison seems unbiased, compared with ANYTHING broadcasted on Fox news.

    So you admit that CNN is nothing more than leftwing hackery.

    You say that like it would be a bad thing to eliminate Faux News.

    Why, because it reports the truth that Obama doesn't want the American people to know?

    You mean like CNN?
