    You've fallen for the conservative victimization view that everyone outside your bubble is against you.
    Your post makes no sense. You acknowledge that some are more progressive than others and that CNN has a phony balance, that tells me you basically agree that every major news outlet other than fox has a left lean. In that case, American is absolutely correct when he says that Fox IS the balance; in that it provides a rightward take to balance the leftward take that exists everywhere else. Its not victimization, its fact. The reason Fox is so popular is BECAUSE it is different from every other major news source.

    I said the some news outlets have a left lean, and cited CNN as one that generally isn't left leaning. The question was whether or not every MSM except Fox News was a mouthpiece for the DNC.

    There are really only 5 major ones. Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN. We know Fox is right leaning, you have said CNN has phony balance, which it does. And it certainly is left leaning and always has been. And you acknowledge that of the other 3 some are more progressive than others. That sort of piles them all in the left leaning category differing only in degree. Which is the truth.

    Again, you are ignoring the poll question which you challenged me on. Being left leaning, centrist, or just broadcasting the news is not being a mouthpiece for the Democrats.

    If there was or is any doubt that the MSM does the bidding for the DNC, proof positive has been provided by this past weeks coverage of Hillary Clinton's announcement for the Democrat nomination and their over the top coverage of her caravan to Iowa. Several Republican candidates have announced and not one of them has received wall to wall daily coverage of the like that Clinton is receiving. It's frankly quite nauseating but there is one benefit. The media is so blatantly and transparently in the tank for Clinton that 19 months of this type of fawning coverage will surely turn the majority of Americans off as well as give them clear indication of the woman for whom she is and it won't be pretty.

    CNN appears to be giving them all equal coverage.

    What are you watching? On the three broadcast networks, I have not seen the type of coverage you claim is out there. Last night, 6:30 ABC barely mentioned Clinton, the night before 6:30 CBS barely mentioned Clinton. In fact not much was said of any candidate on those two broadcasts.

    I've been watching CNN the past week and it's wall to wall Clinton in the most favourable of terms - every hour segment has at least 15 minutes of the Clinton caravan and stories about how she has a new style this time around, yada yada yada, with Clinton mouthpieces for each segment and political "analysts" who are embarrassingly pro-Clinton. It's as if they're all auditioning for the job of Clinton's press secretary or White House press secretary. Truly nauseating.
