    If one were to leave their parent's basement every so often and ... oh, I don't know ... maybe go to a sporting event or a game show (you know, something that is televised) they would know that there are such things as applause signs, announcements that we are about to "go live", etc... As for FOX News "stage-managing Tea Parties", it was a live broadcast and she was letting everyone know that they were broadcasting live. I've been to hundreds of sporting events and I've even been on a talk show (full disclosure - it was on FOX News) and getting the crowd fired up as you are going live is nothing new - it's the norm. I've also been to Tea Party events, and there is nothing "staged" at all. But with such reliable sources such as C&L, Media Matters (Not) and Huffington Post, you must be right.

    So regular guests contributors and guets: Juan Williams, Alan Colmes, Ellis Henican, Joe Trippi, Bob Beckel, Kirsten Powers, Marc Lamont Hill, Tanya Acker, Leslie Marshall and others don't actually "talk" when they are on FOX News? Funny, because I see their lips moving and words coming out of their mouths. Oh, I get it - you don't actually watch FOX News, you just get your information from those reputable (HA) places I mentioned earlier. You know, one of them you even linked to for "proof" of propaganda.

    And how about MSNBC and their propaganda:

    Did you watch their election coverage? They had Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as their anchors. Or how about Lawrence O'Donnell and this:

    Uh, no - it was a Ron Paul supporter put up to bringing the AR-15 by a right-wing radio host in order to stage an inflammatory interview. Did you even read your own link?

    You must be some kind of wizard. I would have never known this stuff without you telling me, or non-partisan Fox News telling me about how MSNBC is a tool for the Democratic party which I agree probably is except that oh wait, Fox News is incredibly horribly biased to the point that they make no effort to disguise it. Proof?

    Roger Ailes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia President of Fox News

    Not to mention countless clips as such your single one. Hmm now that I feel smug and assured in my post I will end in something I believe is witty and shows my intellectual superiority.

    My Weekly Reader is good.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. 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

    Re: What is the least biased news outlet?

    Following the rules "What is the least biased news outlet?"
    Paying attention to the wording I answered CNN otherwise I would have answered none of the above if it had been an option.

    Anybody that answered Fox or MSNBC is either joking, blind and bias themselves or a complete idiot, pick one
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    How did you shoot down anything I said? You give Fox of all sources as a source to MSNBC being biased. If I wanted to go eye for an eye I would just post one of the 100 times a week MSNBC does the same thing towards Fox, instead I gave you hard sourceable facts not some horse **** from one of these networks.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Yes I read it. Did you? Besides, this was a town hall meeting before the health care bill passed. I don't even think people knew who rand paul was then.
