    Re: Best American TV news

    I know this is antithetical, seeing we're discussing this on DP, but I find American "news" to be far too political in content and slant. Sometimes news is just news and you don't need three talking heads telling us how it affects Washington or the Presidential primaries.

    I'm old enough to remember a time when the news was actually news at least for the first 20 minutes or so, and then you got the human interest stuff and then maybe some political stuff but not non-stop Presidential politics and who's running, who's not and how does this bit of news affect their decision to run or not run.

    You can make an argument why it is or it isn't best American news.
    Fox. Because it's the only one that's managed to keep its head out of Barack Obama's you know what.

    I watch The Blaze mostly. I watch fox sometimes, but they're only the best of the bad.

    Television caters to the lowest common denominator in our society. The country suffers from terminal boredom and apathy. Watching television news is allowing someone else to tell what you should think, and that saves a lot of effort for those not inclined to exert themselves in anyway.

    The BBC! oh wait...

    I get most of my news online, I don't watch too much on tv but when I do it's usually fox news for commentary. If for some reason bbc isn't cutting it for me online I'll head over to CNN. Same with television and fox news, I mix it up between that and CNN but I usually stick to the two.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I always stayed away from cable news for the same reasons and found newspapers to be better but that's no longer the case.

    I watch a lot of BBC now though. I find they take a very "these are the facts" approach.
