    CNN and MSNBC almost always include a conservative perspective in their news analysis...
    Ya Keith Olberman always gets balanced out. You call Colmes a foil but the only Republicans on MSNBC are ****ing RINO's IE Scarborough and Carlson sh!t Scarborough came out for support of Al Gore on Bill Maher two weeks ago.

In fact, the one crusade shared by nearly every host is to smear Hillary Clinton and lambast both her and Bill with personal insults. The views expressed on FOX by the majority of it's pundits, hosts, and anchors are overwhelmingly right wing but, to be "fair and balanced", every major media outlet has painfully obvious political leanings and loyalties though many of them won't admit it. Take the New York Times for example: It consistantly denied that it is dedicated to the cause of the left wing until an internal memo popped out of the woodwork and revealed that the paper had a deeply rooted liberal bias.
    BBC of the UK is not biased. Its independant and touches both side, but seem very balanced in the center.
    Most European TV nexs channels are not biased, of course with the exception of Italian tv which is owned by Mr Berlusconi. Yet the Italian people elected Roman Prodi, which shows there is hope even in a media controlled country.

    Most news in the US are ultra rightist conservative, while a few that people in the US would call leftist in most definition are centrist. I dont know a single leftists newsmedium in the US.. NY times certainly isnt leftist, its centrists. But I guess rightist, centrist and leftists is defined by where you live. Almost everyone in the US if they lived in Europe would be far right or right-center or at best centrists. The democratic party would be defined "center-right" in most European countries.
    In the world, Europe is centrist and liberal, America (extreme) rightist and mostly liberal, Russia is leftist and conservative but becoming liberal, middle east is leftist and extreme conservative, China is leftist liberal, Japan is center liberal, most the rest of Asia is liberal center-left, Thailand is now conservative centrists.

    So whereever you go the opinions will be different, in Russia for example, they would define most countries are extreme rightists liberals.
    But again, I would be branded far right and ultra liberal by most people in Asia.

    So I guess you can split the world in 3-5 parts. Or dusins. But in the world the US is extreme rightists almost by any standard.

    Difficult to explain really, but the "leftist" in the US is "rightist" almost everywhere else, while the right in Europe is "extreme right" almost everywhere else except the US where its "rightist", while the centrist Europeans are leftist to the US and rightist almost in every other definition. The left in Europe then is extremely left to the US while centrist most elsewhere.

    Thats it, I hope you understand what I mean.

    1. is Fox more biased than MSNBC or CNN?
    * Certainly sir, not fox, but fox news.
    2. is the only decisively biased show on Fox Hannity and Colmes?
    *absolutely every show on fox is a rightist conservative parade.
    3. are Hannity and Colmes biased towards both sides of the spectrum?
    *no, just to the right side, colmes is just a scripting man, he isnt a democrat, he voted for Bush.
    4. does a comparison of two shows (O'Reilly and Olbermann) have anything to do with a single network's overall bias?
    *no sir, you have to watch the whole specter, with fox news this is very one sided, definetely not balanced as they say, not fair since its propaganda like.
    5. are the findings of the UCLA study (that found Fox to be centrist) sound?
    *no, this is just propaganda, fox must have paid them off, or the people who studied it must have been from the extreme right like TOT.
    6. does "the left" actually "have" two of the three 24 hour news networks, all of public broadcasting, and all three of the big networks IE ABC CBS and NBC?
    *in Europe, most American newschannels would be branded rightist or center-right.

    This is the crazist **** I've ever heard, do you consider anything to the right of the daily worker to be ultra rightist conservative?

    Olbermann isn't supposed to be balanced, just like Bill O'Reilly isn't supposed to be balanced. Those are opinion shows, and that's fine. The problem is that FOX News' political agenda regularly goes beyond the opinion shows into its news coverage. I gave a couple examples above.

    Scarborough and Carlson both have their own shows to say whatever they think. They aren't weak debaters being paired up against some assertive liberal. And let's not forget Bob Novak, who was on CNN for years until his bizarre outburst last year. Is he a RINO too?

    There are other conservatives that regularly appear on those networks. Pat Buchanan is on MSNBC almost every day.


    It's completely possible for a news source to have a conservative bias without pushing GOP propaganda. The Wall Street Journal is an excellent example of this.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    1. is Fox more biased than MSNBC or CNN?
    * Certainly sir, not fox, but fox news.
    Ya umm watch Keith Olberman sometime.

    2. is the only decisively biased show on Fox Hannity and Colmes?
    *absolutely every show on fox is a rightist conservative parade.
    Tell that to UCLA who found it to be one of the only centrist news outlets.

    3. are Hannity and Colmes biased towards both sides of the spectrum?
    *no, just to the right side, colmes is just a scripting man, he isnt a democrat, he voted for Bush.
    Really I'm sure you have some evidence of that right? Oh that's right you're full of ****ing **** and think you are above proving your accusations.

    4. does a comparison of two shows (O'Reilly and Olbermann) have anything to do with a single network's overall bias?
    *no sir, you have to watch the whole specter, with fox news this is very one sided, definetely not balanced as they say, not fair since its propaganda like.
    How is it propaganda like?

    5. are the findings of the UCLA study (that found Fox to be centrist) sound?
    *no, this is just propaganda, fox must have paid them off, or the people who studied it must have been from the extreme right like TOT.
    Again another unsubstantiated lie, the study was conducted in a scientific manner and was not funded by any outside body.

    6. does "the left" actually "have" two of the three 24 hour news networks, all of public broadcasting, and all three of the big networks IE ABC CBS and NBC?
    *in Europe, most American newschannels would be branded rightist or center-right.
    Well apparently in Europe anything to the right of the daily worker is considered right wing.

    7. who is more biased? Fox or (insert name of any other media entity here)?
    *FOX News!!!!!!!!
    Again not according to scientific analysis.
    8. or just say the word and you can stand in for Cold Dirt in the private debate I've already set up.
    I would like to see you have a go a TOT in a private debate, he is the ultimate righ****t conservative.
    Any topic anytime.

    Chavez is a dictator, they are homicide bombers, and his middle name is Hussein are you asserting that facts lean to the right now? And I would say that any station that refers to them as suicide bombers or Chavez as a legitimate ruler leans to the left.


    Scarborough and Carlson both have their own shows to say whatever they think. They aren't weak debaters being paired up against some assertive liberal.
    Are you asserting that Hannity is a better debater than Colmes? You're joking right?

    And let's not forget Bob Novak, who was on CNN for years until his bizarre outburst last year. Is he a RINO too?
    How many former Clinton cabinet members are on the payrolls of CNN and MSNBC? His outburst wasn't bizarre infact it was another example of how biased CNN is, why do you think he got pissed?

    There are other conservatives that regularly appear on those networks. Pat Buchanan is on MSNBC almost every day.
    Buchanan's a paleo-con.
