    Fox, CNN and the rest bias towards what sells. When was the last time BBC devoted a whole week to a missing white girl in Aruba?

    Being publicly funded has some benefits. You don't have to pander to the morons.

    Fox devoted virtually a month. CNN too.

    Does NPR have a bias?

    Yes. The question is what is that bias?

    I can't remember the last time Fox or CNN have a real report regarding the long term financial difficulties and fallout from the massive debt we've accrued over the past 8 years. NPR and PBS have these on a somewhat regular basis.

    Less bias or more bias doesn't equate to better news. Fox and CNN (except for CNN world, but that's another animal) aren't news. They are entertainment. Don't expect to find relevant, complex issues on those stations.
    They have them every day on Special Report and on the Neil Cavuto show and on Fox Business Channel.

    You have no idea of what you are talking about.

    Jon Scott & Jane Skinner - News
    Neil Cavuto - Financial News & News Commentary
    Special Report - News and News Commentary
    Studio B w/ Shep Smith - News

    And they have news updates at the top of the hour and on the half hour.

    You have allowed your incomplete information about Fox to cloud your vision on this issue. What's worse is that you are perpetuating a stereotype just like the idiots who know no better.

    But you should know better.

    Actually. He is quite right. You do not understand what he is talking about which is just unfortunate for you..

    The terms branded on people and various politics are at best times rather hilarious and ridiculous. Just following the agenda of someone else is actually quite stupid, but most people do have a variety of opinions about different things, that differ quite from the labels. In the end, the labels is just a mess, and in America conservative now means right, and liberal left, even though the words in reality means something completely different altogether.

    Wow what cerebral baloney. I prefer to let the factions themselves define their agendas.

    Care to name how many times those shows have gone David Walker on the news?

    lol. Maybe ZERO? It's not really their fault. Average Americans are too dumb to understand what that man is trying to get across.

    And they have news updates at the top of the hour and on the half hour.
    You mean "entertainment" updates. Again, David Walker. If Fox (much less anyone else) actually gave the word out as to how bad it is, he wouldn't have left his post and be on his road trip spreading the word about just how screwed we are.

    You have allowed your incomplete information about Fox to cloud your vision on this issue. What's worse is that you are perpetuating a stereotype just like the idiots who know no better.

    See above.

    Again, David Walker, not something covered on Fox.

    Everyone? Hardly. Those who actually understand think all of the media sucks.

    And am I wrong about the average understanding of liberal/conservative?

    Morons still think the GOP is Conservative. What a joke.

    How about some arguments for a change rather then soundbites?

    All those channels suck. PBS and NPR are good, as well as the BBC.

    At least none of them hire Nancy Grace.

    CNN World is excellent. It's a completely different species from the C*@p News Network in the US.

    lol.

    Fox News (and CNN to a degree): The debt problems that will come to bite us in the future in ways most of us can't even begin to understand are less newsworthy then 1) missing teenage white girl OR 2) highly paid athlete kills a) wife, b) girlfriend c) related person.

    Therefore, we will devote 500x the air time we commit to the debt problem to either missing white girl or murderous overpaid athlete.

    American "news" (and I use that term loosely) outlets suck.

    I recently got cable and was so disgusted with the news that I'm not continuing the service this month. It wasn't even "news," really. It was really nothing more than anything you'd find in the supermarket checkout line, though I'd have to say that Fox News was a bit more of a culprit than most. I simply lack the literary skills to express my contempt for television news. BBC is obviously a league in their own (it was the only station I watched that said boo about the Gaza mess) but one station can't justify a big cable bill for me.
