    This is how I see it:

    FOX is outrageously wrong in saying that some of its shows are fair and unbiased and so is MSNBC. MSNBC basically bashes FOX and FOX basically bashes everything that isn't FOX.

    Don't get me wrong though, both of these networks have some very good comedy shows like The O'Reilly Factor and Countdown With Keith Olbermann.

    As far as the MOST unbiased, I would say CNN, some of their top reporters are true to the model of the "true reporter." For example, Anderson Cooper always shares his analysis or his opinion on a matter without being partisan, unlike O'Reilly or Olbermann. CNN does have some bias here and there (like Campbell Brown's show), but overall its much better than MSNBC or FOX.

    Honestly I don't watch CBS, and I don't know much about it, so I won't say anything.

    Amusing. The fundamental problem with that poll is that it assumes that the American public has any real understanding of what is "Conservative" and what is "Liberal."

    Republican leaning views are hardly conservative yet most morons in America think that the GOP is still Conservative when they are in fact some of the biggest liberals in US history. The outgoing President and his term with all Republican government brought Socialism, Nationalization, Anti-free trade policies (steel anyone?), and a whole host of strongly anti-conservative measures. Furthermore, the uber-fake social conservatism is pretty rampant.
    Are they less biased, or is the polling sample just ignorant as to what measures they are judging the stations on?

    The art of reporting the news has gotten far too meshed up in editorializing. Reporters use to report the facts. They might have commonly looked for an angle from which to report and approach the facts whereas now they look for the slant from which to spin. It's fairly outrageous. Investigative journalism has pretty much fallen by the wayside in favor of allowing folks to just come on tv and bitch back and forth sans a truth detector or any form of accountability for what they say.

    Its either CBS or ABC.. Fox and MSNBC is wildly leaning and biased, while CNN is just skewed and brainwashing like. CBS I choose for the sake of the poll, while I could just as well have chosen ABC.

    At least those two are clearly definetely least biased of the 5.

    BBC is British

    Still its less biased than all of the 5 big US channels, even though its wildly pro-west and often blindly anti-Russian.

    Olbermann is the O'Reilly of the left.. Both are dumb, but in 10% of their cases have SOME valid points.

    That channel is unfortunately not available in Europe. We have something similar in Norway, parliament radio, and some live coverage from parliament on TV.. But far too little of it, those things is the politics I prefer to watch, politicians who debate with each other in an orderly fashion, proper etiquette and no garbage.

    I wish it was live 24 hours a day, such as any proper democracy should be, live coverage of all political institutions 24 hours a day.
