    What News Channel is the least biased?

    I try to get news from multiple sources, usually using one to play off the other as they all seem to lean to some extent. I have however, found one in particular to play pretty fair while actually providing the information I seek.
    Which do you find tends to cover the news without heavy bias....if any?

    out of the networks, CNN is the least biased. it does lean, but not as much as the entertainment networks Fox and MSNBC.

    there's no perfect network, and the existing networks seem more interested in sensationalism to create ratings. i generally read google news online, which compiles everything.

    I like the PBS and BBC news for balanced coverage, but that could be because they sensationalize less. (You can achieve a biased news show by omitting coverage just you can by any other means.)

    Not sure which is least biased, but I'd say MSNBC and FoxNews aren't even in the running, IMO.

    There was a reason I didn't choose Fox - simple integrity. If I were liberal or "undisclosed" for instance, I don't think I could have brought myself to MSNBC or NPR. Either they have made some serious changes at NPR. or we are decidedly different.

    Instead of NPR, the choice should be PBS as NPR is radio only, while PBS is the TV network. Can't compare radio to TV

    NPR is the only one that is ultimately answers to Congress.

    True, but channel has other meanings. I supposed the should have lower-cased the first letter, but even then you might be splitting hairs.
