    All of these sources have liberal bias, and Rush Limbaugh is the only conservative bias network. Why is Foxnews not one of the choices? And what about other international news sites like Jpost?

    There should be a "none of the above" option in this poll. Or more news options.

    I wouldn't trust any of them too far. But if I had to put them in order, it would roughly be:

    PBS news
    ABC news
    BBC/CNN tied
    Rush Limbaugh

    Although perhaps Rush should be first, since he at least is honest about what you're getting on his show, and doesn't pretend to be 'fair and balanced'.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Why didn't you put C-Span up there? For political news without commentary, it's one of the best since you can watch directly what the politicians are debating about.

    My cable service actually carries a BBC channel, known as BBC America, or BBCA. It's how I got to watch Robin Hood and Doctor Who.

    PBS - everything else is concerned with ratings and they'll sensationalize, nitpick and overlook important stories if they think it would hurt ratings.

    PBS just doesn't play that.

    Many get BBC America which shows the BBC News.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Or honest. Or credible. Or rational. He's a big, ranting windbag with an agenda and an ego the size of Texas.
