    Fox would be a 75. MSNBC would be a 25. CNN would likely be a 35 to 40 by and large.
    That seems about right. CNN does tilt a bit left, but not as much as MSNBC

    I don't know. I do not watch enough American news to know this. So I voted that they are capitalist pigs and need to be nationalised.

    I don't think they're as bad as MSNBC or Fox in terms of bias. I don't really watch much of any of them, though. After the debates I flip between them to see how the pundits spin them, but I don't take any of it very seriously.

    Yes, but I did not previously know what OBrien has done. There have been countless occasions where there were subtle comments or guided questions that had been rather biased in favor of the American liberal viewpoints.

    I don't know how true it is but I read some place Anderson Cooper isn't nearly as liberal as he comes off and fights with CNN repeatedly over his content. Overall I think CNN is more biased then Fox but less than MSNBC.

    Re: Is CNN left-wing biased?

    CNN is by far closer to the center than any other network. is it completely unbiased? no, my guess is that most of the on air personalities lean left. is it hopelessly ruined by bias like Fox or MSNBC? not even close.

    i will say that it's the only one of the three that i can still stand to watch. fox is a sensationalized commercial for the right, and MSNBC is almost a left wing parody of fox, splitting its time between confirmation bias and celebrity prison sex part five. i find both unwatchable.

    I pretty much agree with this with different numbers but the premis is the same.

    I don't watch TV, but I had the impression that Fox was at worst in the 7-9 range...Why 11?
