    Yes, another good source for interesting information. Al Jazeera in Europe is OK too.

    Had to make it worth making a poll, truth be told...anyone who picks NPR will also use the BBC.

    and Al Jazeera is a bit beyond half the members here.

    Well OK, I guess it's a spectrum. I just...can't watch it. My eyes glaze over and I cringe. I find no appreciable difference between it and Jerry Springer or pro wrestling. How would you otherwise describe an incessant onslaught of propaganda, manipulative rhetoric, garden variety nonsequiturs, questionable premises going unquestioned, generalizations, argument taken to absurd extremes and conclusory invective met with nodding enthusiasm? The audience must be daft. It's a fairly unavoidable assessment.

    Well I think that was my point. I think enough people engage in air travel now that it should not be the case. Every tom Dick and Harry now goes to benelux at some time or another. And when they do hopefully they might take the time to notice that Al Jazeera is not all about sepia toned people of middle eastern extraction mobbing a town square shooting kalashnikovs in the air. It is basically mainstream coverage. If you like decent conservative news TV, I would recommend Australia.

    THe one thing these polls are useful for is to weed out the bias non-objective illogical hacks

    to bad this one doesnt have MSNBC in the main poll.

    every time I see these things I just immediately look to see if anybody voted for Fox or MSNBC and then I immediately add them to the illogical bias hack list. 95% of the time they are already on it though because usually all you have to do is read one post for these nitwits and its very evident they are blind loons and very bias.

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."

Fox is a 24/7 Republican party infomercial geared to appease a nearly retarded viewership. NPR has novel experts on diverse subjects who are interviewed at length, as opposed to the others listed here, which tend to have a revolving handful of supposed jack-of-all trade pundits shouting invective in 5 second soundbites back and forth at one another, all modeled after Fix news.

    I learn nothing from those programs and so don't ever watch them. I am certain that anyone who watches Fox news for more than 1 hour per day would be really, really pressed to sit still and read a good thick book. I mean it. They are retarded.
    BBC and NPR lie about facts surrounding U.S. wars constantly, and they have been propagandizing for the British and American States for the reason that major oil field contracts were awarded to both countries following Iraq. (We have yet to see who gets what from Libya.) But after being a megaphone for wars for so many years, how can anyone honestly say their reliable?

    BBC, NPR, Al Jazeera are all propaganda organs of the State. The goal is imperialism, loot and pillage. And to these these Big Brother outlets, the Big Lie is the humanitarian cause. The mercenaries of Libya and Syria are funded by the State Dept., and are ruthless killers committing war crimes America is using for its ground wars.

    Just as BBC/NPR relied on NeoCon fabricated WMD lies from Bush/Cheney for Iraq, so too are they have been from the beginning relying on State Dept. funded terror groups like the Free Syrian Army for their information and casualty reports, and using the fake cell-phone videos put on YouTube to bolster imperialist intervention aims, the same way the thoroughly discredited Al-Jazeera english, (now propagandizing Pacifica Radio public stations) does.

    The Facebook Arab Spring and spontaneous demonstrations, my eye. More like push button activism remotely instigated by CentCom in Quatar, home of Al Jazeera english, where the U.S. military base there co-ordinates regime change propaganda broadcasts and using Facebook and Twitter postings to generate the appearance of democratic uprisings on behalf of the American Pentagon.

    The only thing that this thread has verified is that NPR must be the most biased. To wit:

    or maybe it is the reality that those who label themselves as Liberal, Left, Socialist and Progressive have more open minds and are more willing to listen to those opinions which may not be in agreement with their own thoughts in an effort to attain better understanding of serious matters - unlike the True Believers who already 'know' the Truth and reality be damned.
    “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.”
