    It's been the "Big Four" for over 20 years.

    There is no way Pete is including Fox.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    All four (Including Fox.) of them are fair and balanced.

    The FCC insists on that.

    To answer the question:

    The Big 3 favors what will make them the most money. In fact, I believe that to be true of almost all "news" broadcasts.

    I can't speak for other Fox affiliates, but the one locally does not carry a national news broadcast.

    That's true to an extent. Our FOX affiliate does some cable news shows.

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

    Fox here isn't cable, it's a broadcast network and always has been. I think that's true of most places.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Not the broadcast versions. Now cable news is a free for all.

    There is nothing wrong with being accurate, and "Big Four" has been for a very long time. In fact, I remember when journalists derided the upstart that billed itself as a "network" and were confident that there would always be only a "Big Three."
