    Just wondering what you think. And what about the rest of the left wing media are they also tools for the democrats?
    I don't understand how people that say FOX isn't a propaganda beacon for the right say MSNBC is a propaganda beacon for the left.

    I would say both stations cater to their audiences as a way to guarantee ratings to a certain extent, they have occupied niche markets that the other does not have.

    What you imply however is inches short of conspiracy.


    Though you probably don't have a problem with that.

    Then take just two hours of your life and I'll show you.

    Watch an hour of Rachel Maddow, arguably the smartest person on TV, and see her excoriate the dems as well as the repubs, even while doing so with an admittedly liberal viewpoint. Write down the news stories she covers, then fact-check it afterwards.

    Then do the same with Beck, Hannity or even O'reilly.

    Maddow argues using facts, whereas Beck et al argue using distortion of facts.

    I'm going to be consistent; I said FOX wasn't Republican propaganda and I'm going to say that MSNBC isn't Democratic propaganda.

    Your entire post was completely irrelevant to my post. I'm looking for an explanation from someone who thinks MSNBC is a beacon for the left but Fox news isn't for the right.

    Not that your counterarguement was challenging, but I doubt anyone on Fox is a Rhodes Scholar:

    A graduate of Castro Valley High School in Castro Valley, Maddow earned a degree in public policy from Stanford University in 1994. At graduation she was awarded the John Gardner Fellowship. She was also the recipient of a Rhodes Scholarship and began her postgraduate study in 1995 at Lincoln College, Oxford. In 2001, she completed her Doctor of Philosophy degree in politics from Oxford University.

    Officially? No. In the real world? Yes.

    Bill Gates owns MSNBC. Gates is as Republican as they come; therefore, MSNBC CANNOT be a Democratic propaganda beacon.
