    I think both networks are a ways away from NBCNews.

    In fairness I was so turned off by MSNBC years ago that I can't remember the last time I put the channel on but it's definitely not within the last few years. What I see tends to be clips so it is certainly possible that people are uploading the most ridiculous stuff.
    like I said tis ok, its all opinion its just shocking to me because I think FOX is easily top dog I dont even think they have any competition, I think MSNBC wants to be like them but fails, they are like 1 and 2 for me and while I think CNN is left leaning I dont even think they are in fox's league of biased at all, its like a feather weight adn a heavy weight but again thats jut me.

    As long as you see fox's clear and blatant obvious bias Id say your just fine

    There's a slight left wing bias on CNN. Not nearly as bad as MSNBC, which is the left wing equivalent of Fox News.

    Essentially....

    Fox would be a 75. MSNBC would be a 25. CNN would likely be a 35 to 40 by and large.
    I agree, though I would scale it as 80, 30, 45, respectively.

    Fox News is extremely biased but I don't think anyone is as blatantly dishonest as MSNBC. This from a centrist that likely is a little left leaning. I don't watch either much, its netflix and video games in my house, but dang is Chris Mathews and that bunch annoying.

    The mayor actually has to call her out on it.

    Less biased than Fox. Even fox's main news station isn't extreme. The extreme stuff is on their internet. CNN's internet is more liberal than their main news station but MUCH less biased than Fox's internet.

    Maybe THAT's why I never thought of Fox as uber-biased - I mainly encounter their product when I hear their radio news broadcasts on a local radio station, and those are usually just short bits about the news, no commentary or anything...

    Re: Is CNN left-wing biased?

    You forgot a poll option: No.

    From what I've seen, CNN is highly responsible in reporting the facts.

    It's the facts that have a liberal bias.

    I end up getting most of my news from what is probably the single most liberal source in the country, The New York Times.
    The Irony is that everyone talks about how hardcore right Fox is and fairly often I actually see Juan Williams, Allan Combes, Geraldo, Bob Beckel etc tote the liberal party line.

    Re: Is CNN left-wing biased?

    I think it is near impossible for a media outlet to be unbiased. Even in picking what stories to cover, bias will seep in. I do think that, unlike Fox and MSNBC, most of the news outlets at least try to be unbiased. They fail, but they try.

    Also, I have no problem with Fox and MSNBC being overtly biased. I enjoy watching Maddow and Hayes in the same way I am sure Conservatives enjoy watching the OíReilly or Hannity. Nothing wrong with that, as long as we donít pretend that they arenít biased.
