    Why, or how, is it news to parrot what people say about the news? I have to wonder why anyone would want news to be "balanced." Can't it just be accurate?

    the least biased news outlets weren't listed as poll choices.

    NPR, PBS, & BBC,
    et al.
    What others are you referring to when you indicate "et al."?

    And NPR, PBS and BBC are notoriously left slanted.

    The BBC is admittedly so.

    Re: What is the least biased news outlet?

    The BBC reports on things and places that it would never occur to anyone at Fox could possibly matter.

    That's what I consider balanced.

    The BBC is a worldwide news service, Fox is only barely an American news service with a lean towards purely political news and sheer bull**** moral panic crap.

    If you want to know what's going on outside of a place where white people live and you don't want it framed as "how it involves 'Merkans!" you should read BBC. If you want to read inane minutiae of American political maneuvering and how not enough of todays youth are saving themselves for marriage you can read Fox.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Still its less biased than all of the 5 big US channels, even though its wildly pro-west and often blindly anti-Russian.
    If you guys all think the BBC is unbiased or less biased than the choices listed in the poll then you have faulty critical thinking skills and are unreliable observers and critics of politics.

    Basically you are blind and that may be what makes many of your comments suspect.

    You are unable to know heads from tales. (Excuse my play on words.)

    You lost. Give it up.

    Least biased, Mr. Europhile.

    Not most balanced.

    Re: What is the least biased news outlet?

    I think biased towards mind-poundingly boring politicaly-irrelevant details is quite relevant.

    "My news station is far less biased in our discussion of whether or not Nancy Pelosi picks her nose!"

    "No mine is!"
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    BBC is quite neutral in its stands, exceptionally so for a western news media channel.. Anyways, I am critical towards politics, no point denying that.. Perhaps you are the unreliable observer if you aren't critical of politics of today.

    I am not in any way saying BBC is fantastic, but its not biased towards a political leaning.

    The BBC is admittedly so.

    For NPR and PBS you have Reagan and Gingrich to blame for that.

    You are quite remarkable. Look at post #21.

    In the face of overwhelming evidence you STILL deny the truth.

    Just blaming their bias on others does not absolve them of bias.

    Taken to an extreme, your blame gaming sounds like the rationale used by anti-Prophet cartoon Muslim rioters who killed people because they felt they were helpless to act otherwise.

    "It was THEIR fault!"
