    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?

    half of those tools are conservatives themselves, who occasionally chime in with the 'I vote democrat, and even I, me being a moderate democrat, think Obama is a socialist!' the other half are the biggest bunch of idiots i've ever seen and basically play the role of Colmes, sit there and nod there heads until Hannity gives them his permission to speak, where they then udder some scripted bull**** until Hannity interupts them again.

    Re: What is the least biased news outlet?

    I don't know much about ABC or CBS, but I def know Fox and MSNBC are biased.. so I voted CNN..

    I am actually a little surprised to see so many republicans saying FOX is unbiased... They have so many people who work for their network who are or were active members in the GOP, and during the election it was all anti Obama.. running documentaries 24/7 about Ayers, dug up tapes of Wright's sermons, and played a role in his admin firing a woman for supposed racism.

    Now I know all of you are going to fire off.... but the media was still overall more favorable to Obama! BUT nearly the majority of the negatives for Obama were from that one network and positives for McCain/Palin were probably also coming from that network.. it's obviously biased. Even if you try to argue it's a balance in the overall media, it's still obviously biased.

    The only unbiased person on that network might be Shep Smith, but I haven't watch him enough to know..

    There was no one else covering Obama's background. Fox was the only one. The others were all reporting Palin "bad" Obama "good"

    Obama got the biggest pass from the mainstream media in modern history.

    CNN is a major Dem mouthpiece

    And you don't thin McCain or Palin can be linked to sketchy people from their past who were radicals or went to prison? Fox News didn't give equal time to all the candidates and there past in those terms..

    Im not sure you can call what we have in the US news. Every station has a bias. In Canada and some countries in europe they have some pure news organizations.

    Its not just bias. When you have advertisement you need ratings. Ratings means telling the audience what you think they want to hear. Your now an entertainer.

    So your saying just because Obama's backround was unkown to many folks, that excuses blatant lies and unceasing attacks?
