    Re: What News Channel is the least biased?

    I think a better poll would be who is the least biased news commentator. People such as Bill O'Reilly, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart, etc. I know Stewart is more for comedy but the guy is very politically active and has some cross party views. I can start that poll actually. Anyone have any other suggestions for it before I do?

    Aren't commentators supposed to be biased? It makes more sense to ask which anchor/host is least biased. You can start with Diane Sawyer, Scott Pelley and Brian Williams.

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Some of the claim not to be (O'Reilly mainly). Maybe a better word would be which one is more fair.

    Media Bias Is Real, Finds UCLA Political Scientist

    Interesting article, but from 2005.

    While the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is conservative, the newspaper's news pages are liberal, even more liberal than The New York Times. The Drudge Report may have a right-wing reputation, but it leans left. Coverage by public television and radio is conservative compared to the rest of the mainstream media. Meanwhile, almost all major media outlets tilt to the left.

    These are just a few of the surprising findings from a UCLA-led study, which is believed to be the first successful attempt at objectively quantifying bias in a range of media outlets and ranking them accordingly.

    I voted none. I think Fox is biased towards the right, and the rest are biased towards the left. I'm not sure which one is "least" biased.

    Re: What News Channel is the least biased?

    When discussing politics it is hard for anyone not to have some bias, period. Non political stories they are somewhat truthful.

    Although I remember one station was reporting on an area receiving heavy rain and some flooding. They had a reporter sitting in the middle of a street in a boat when some guy went walking by him with water up mid calf....
    The worst bias was the FOX reporter caught in the camera waving her arms up to encourage the crowd to protest louder.

    Re: What News Channel is the least biased?

    I voted Fox as least biased for the simple reason that they are normally much more likely to report negative news on both sides of the isle, something the other news channels will usually only do when a story damaging to their political party of choice gets too big to bury or downplay_

    The left wing media did very little vetting of Obama before the 2008 election but instead exaggerated his qualifications and either ignored or downplayed the stuff that was damaging to him which is obvious by the ignorance of his supporters who never watched Fox News prior to the election_

    The result is we now have a not too bright, marxist, racist President who has done an enormous amount of damage to this nation in less than four years in office__Four more years of Obama and we might as well petition Red China for statehood since they will already own us and have most of our jobs_

    Hey, does anybody know where I can get me one of those Rosetta Stone, Chinese Learning Software at?__Learning Chinese might be the new american ticket to success in the 21st century__Anybody know how to say "long live the chairman" in mandarin?__Wait a minute, is he dead?

    So you're the one who voted for FOXNews.

    Brilliant.
