    If you don't watch, you don't know__I do watch them all and they're all biased_

    Yea this is why no one takes you serious.

    You say that, yet you know quite well a number of conservatives brazenly declare themselves in similar fashion, whether or not our representation of their views is slightly hyperbolic (as I think you are doing here).

    First one goes to NPR for me.

    Second one is jacked up. Sorry about that.

    NPR has had a few big and small scandals over the years concerning their bias. I think the Schillers and Juan Williams were involved in those.


    Juan Williams Tears Into NPR Over Ron Schiller Scandal (VIDEO)


    NPR chief Vivian Schiller ousted amid video scandal

    "The comments contained in the video released today are contrary to everything we stand for, and we completely disavow the views expressed," NPR spokeswoman Dana Davis Rehm said in a statement. "

    The point of NPR being biased as anyone stands. I used to listen to NPR quite often and its become obvious.
    Thank you

    I thought it was interesting who voiced some complaints about the video showing NPR fundraiser Ron Schiller at a meeting with two supposed Muslim donors.

    Analysts, NPR: Video edit of executive misleading

    Analysts from the Poynter Institute and The Blaze, a website set up by Fox News host Glenn Beck, told an NPR reporter that they found a short version of the video deceiving when compared with the full two-hour tape of a lunch meeting between NPR fundraisers and two conservative activists posing as a fake Muslim group. The men offered NPR a $5 million donation and engaged in a wide-ranging political discussion.

    The analysts' comments were contained in an NPR story published Monday. The Blaze also ran a piece last week discussing the differences between the edited video and the longer version.

    "I tell my children there are two ways to lie," said Al Tompkins, a broadcast journalist who teaches ethics at the Poynter Institute, a journalism school in Florida. "One is to tell me something that didn't happen, and the other is not to tell me something that did happen. I think they employed both techniques in this."
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Im basing my opinion on various reports, me watching both channel (rarely), and various other analysis.

    If you don't watch, you don't know__I do watch them all and they're all biased_
    Are they equally biased and have equal hacks?

    That's usually the case for anyone who doesn't adhere to popular belief_

    Your not speaking a "unpopular truth", your speaking a opinion that is not based off any facts.

    All the TV broadcast media suck now, Democracy Now has been spewing forth the imperialist lies on Syria for a year now. Amy Goodman is a front for the NGO's and foundations peddling fake activism on her TV show. Its a stage play. The Native American will appear all decked out in his head dress, the folksy protest song soundtracks, the DC insiders with their lip service to the Democrat Party wedge issues, token Mexicans, Blacks, Asains, and Gays will co-opt core issues for pre-fabricated Soros funded groups, to gin up support for Barack O'Bomber and cynical electioneering ploys, token evironmental and health care sound bites to support a phony liberal, pro-war establishment party, which fails progressives everyday of the week, as Amy Goodman relies on her stock footage of Dr.King and Ghandi for donations, refusing to release documents outlining where her funding comes from.

    "Earlier the Pacifica National Board’s governance committee considered a funding disclosure motion “the objective” of which was “to have [Democracy Now's] Amy Goodman tell us where she’s getting money and what the money is buying.” The reason for the motion, its advocate explained, “is because there has been a lot of debate about whether Amy Goodman has received CIA conduit foundation funding from the Ford Foundation and other places known long time suspected conduits for CIA funding.”

    Democracy When?
    (a timeline of Amy Goodman's not-so-good coverage: JFK coup, 9/11 complicity, Peak Oil)

    Democracy When?


    "Going back to the Syrian matter, even though thousands of independent videos & reports prove mainstream media lied and fabricated fake information, the majority of the masses – even after the now totally exposed lies on the Iraq war – will still tend to whether agree and accept, or, be totally uninterested by the topic.

    "On this website, we’re dedicated to expose mainstream media lies as well as provide information mainstream media keeps silent about. If you are willing to learn more about the Syrian issue, just clik on the Syria tab and you’ll find more than 340 articles.

    "What do you think people’s reaction would be when reading the Washington post I refer to in the beginning of this article? Do you think people will start questioning US State Department and corrupt Arab League statements about Assad breaking the cease fire ? No way… It will be total acceptance. Under the R2P myth and demonization campaigns against Bashar Al Assad the world has been fed with. Copy/paste with the war on Iraq. Copy/Paste with the war on Libya. Copy/Paste Copy/Paste Copy/Paste… People won’t take the time to think by themselves and refer to the constitution of their country, to international law, to anything… They’ll massively accept what corrupt mainstream media tell them to think. Worst part, is that most of them will then dare talking about it as if they independently took the time to think and research about it."

    CNN is bearable, along with Fox Business News, Fox on the other hand pains me at times to watch it, especially O'rielly ugh, so stubborn.
