    If I have to pick between these two then Fox. I lean Right.

    Good luck with your class.

    Neither. I get my news online.

    I lean slightly left.

    All news media take their tone from the societies they serve/exploit. In the UK the BBC under the tories seems very right wing, the American media in general hilariously so, Fox nuts. The online alternative will have to be taken over if our masters are to go on brainwashing us.

    Re: Political Survey for statistics class.

    I would pick Fox News over BBC for sure. Although I do like watching BBC too because it reminds me of business trips/temporary duty I used to do in England...and that was always a good time. And when I lived in the Netherlands BBC was on cable. Fox News is not some right wing network. That is a myth. Just because is has a right leaning opinion show (Hannity) doesn't mean it is all that way. They truly are fair and balanced when reporting the news.

    I lean right over all, but some would say I lean left on "social issues".

    If you only had two news networks to pick from, which one would you pick? BBC News or Fox News

    Do you lean politically left or politically right?

    Thanks!
    Just fail the class. You should have gathered statistics on favorite color or most well known NASCAR driver.

    It's interesting that you think all American media is right-leaning, when, with the exception of Fox, most people here in the US think the media leans to the left.

    Internet, and I have no lean.

    To stay strictly within the guidelines of the question would force me to be dishonest, which is the problem with polls of this nature.

    I think it may be the "excerpts".

    Short soundclips and videoclips are almost always lacking in context.

    Then again, it could be that the area Pend lives in is so left-wing that even the USA's most left-wing news agencies appear right-wing. Or something?

    That is because your power-people are so far right in world terms that there is nowhere in the world they could escape to if they lost. 'Right' and 'Left' are always relative, after all. There was presumably a left wing at the court of Attila the Hun.
