    I think we all have information filters. We understand things from our own point of view, and would therefore report things as we understand them. Most media bias fits in this category, however the are a few hacks out there that have no problem saying whatever it takes to push an ideology.

    For instance: I, for the life of me cannot understand many liberal positions. If I were to honestly report on the ACA, it would probably look biased even if I in earnest was trying to be balanced.

    All the TV networks have a cable clone and people spend more time watching cable news.

    But the question seems to pretty clearly be asking about the three broadcast networks which have a national news segment. Fox doesn't really fit, which I would guess explain why it was left off.

    Fox is a broadcast network, yes, but it doesn't have a national news program like the other stations. That's what I'm getting at.

    And my link shows that people spend about 3X as much time watching cable news rather than regular network news. Mostly FOX.

    So they spend 3x as much time watching a cable channel dedicated to news as opposed to a broadcast network with a 30 minute news program? And you consider that to be a relevant comparison?

    But since we're comparing...

    Almost three out of four U.S. adults (71%) watch local television news and 65% view network newscasts over the course of a month, according to Nielsen data from February 2013. While 38% of adults watch some cable news during the month,

    Fox News doesn't belong in this conversation. For many many reasons.

    I don't know, I don't watch any broadcast networks for my news, but do any of them have a national news program? It seems the all have a local nightly news, including Fox.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yes, the other three do.

    Yes, and all three of them support the same party.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Don't know, don't care...I never listen to those dinosaurs for news any longer. Same with Fox, CNN and any other U.S. major TV news source.

    Biased, ignorant, incompetent...all of them, IMO.
