    Picking arguably the most biased news network in history as the "least biased" doesn't seem very logical to me. Thanks for the definition.

    Do the votes really surprise anyone? Most of the vote so far are from the lefties. I read most of my news on the Web, so it comes from various sources.

    What did you base your vote on? valid evidence? thin air?

    You almost have to surf a bit, to get different "perspectives", as much of the bias is in the form of OMISSION instead of outright COMMISSION. Some news sources simply ignore anything that they don't "like" or that goes counter to their established theory.

    Coverage of the TP vs. OWS folks was very educational for me. MSNBC was by far the most biased as they supplied "interpreters" (usually Sally Kohn) to say what they WISHED the OWS folks had said, rather than let these loons actually speak for themselves, while Fox actually interviewed them. The TP coverage was almost reversed, although Fox did interview some actual TP crowd members. Many people mistake the distinction between actual news and news "analysis" (commentary/opinion), and presume that ALL on a "news" station is news. Fox/CNN are better than most in making a clear distinction, but still do blur the lines as well.

    It would probably be impossible to note which news channel is the least biased. When you think of it it's nothing but a matter of opinion. In the end, the sad truth is that all of the news channels are biased.

    Perhaps that's why the question was couched in terms of which you thought was LEAST biased.

    I already knew that.

    Still, it's a very subjective matter of opinion.

    It almost seems pointless.

    I'm sure the fact that my politics identifies me more with Fox than with the left-wing networks has something to do with my opinion but I have definitely noticed that Fox is more likely to report negative news on the right than CNN is to report negative news on the left__I have personally witnessed this many times_

    The left wing networks are constantly attacking Fox News the same as Fox News is constantly attacking left-wing news but I realize that they are simply competing for our political souls so I take their criticism of each other with a grain of salt where as you appear believe every word you are told by the talking heads__I judge only by what I see_
