    Their opinion shows are rightward leaning.

    CNN was Saddam's putrid propagandist for years as Eason Jordan admitted, and is the network is amazingly biased. CNNi is some of the most disgusting programming; it is thee anti-American network, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    It's no wonder FOXNEWS has a larger audience than MSNBC and CNN combined; they don't come across as hating the country, and break/report news the leftward stations refuse to. They report two-sides... fair and balanced. You could say they're the WSJ of the airwaves, another publication (Murdoch owned), that is growing while others are dying.

    People are willing to pay for value.

    they all are biased but I agree with you. Many mainstream entertainment shows are propaganda as well.

    examples

    ABC's former hit show Boston Legal was an Anti Bush mouthpiece as the main character was constantly spewing garbage about the Bush administration which was "counterbalanced" by the rantings of Denny Crain (Shatner). THe clear intent of that show was to make the GOP, corporations, drug makers, gun owners look bad.

    NBC's Law and Order was also well known for its leftwing bias-especially after Fred Thompson left the show. Sam Waterson is a well known lefty as was former writer and then producer Mike Chernuchian. On the other hand, some shows were conservative in nature, the most obvious being the long running Chuck Norris series-Walker-Texas Ranger but overall main stream entertainment-tends to lean leftwing in bias. Some of the major cop shows Like the CSI series featuring Gary Sinise (a Republican) or producted by JErry Bruckheimer (a McCain supporter) don't have any real lean.

    Did you just cite fictional shows to show that the news portion of networks is biased?

    no but merely to show that bias tends to permeate networks from the top down

    Bias permeates everyone. It's part of the human condition. I doubt it's orchestrated that way.

    I didn't realize what an effect All in the Family had on people until years later. M*A*S*H too. Both were funny, but I was too young and politically inept to realize the underlying agenda, and fell for much of it.

    For the FOXNEWS HATERS, I recommend the following interviews with the guy at the helm, Roger Ailes. Also his book; You are the Message. You'll discover he's just a normal American guy who dug ditches and seized the great opportunities America afforded him.

    Brian Lamb interview with Roger. Fantastic job by Lamb.

    the answer is C-SPAN.

    The NEWS on Fox is the least biased and also the one I trust most to be accurate.

    NPR would be my choice.

    Re: What is the least biased news outlet?

    Fox News is by far the most far leaning. Not only from their night time line up. I used to think their daily news was more moderate but I've been seeing a lot of right leaning opinions inserted into stories by their news anchors, and I'm honestly disappointed.

    Perhaps NPR should adopt as a slogan "BALANCED AND FAIR". Then how dare anyone question them?

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
