    I don't necessarily disagree with that. My point though, was that while he may indeed be more biased than the other sources, he doesn't try to sell himself as unbiased.

    I don't see why so many Americans hate on the BBC...I've always thought they've done a very good job in terms of accuracy. And the QUALITY of their news is certainly better than anything you'll see on an American cable news network.

    Of the choices on the list, I'd rank them like this:
    PBS
    BBC
    CNN
    Rush

    I don't know much about ABC as I don't think I've ever actually watched it. I'm sure it ranks above Rush Limbaugh, but I don't really know how it compares to the others.

    YEA! C-SPAN has my vote, then Fox. Fox has a mixture of political views. Rush, I love, but he isn't exactly unbiased. BBC is also good.
    The rest I watch, but don't trust. Way too far left.
    You left off the top two, so I was forced to go with Rush.

    Liberals (Progressives) don't like accuracy. They like news that agrees with their agendas.That's why they ignore news stories that make the president or their side look bad.

    Well why do you think Americans hate BBC? I'm a Conservative and I've never heard anyone on my side bash BBC. Quite the contrary, so I figured it must be coming from the left. That is if you are being accurate when you say Americans hate BBC.

    .....so then only the news you watch have no bias? Sounds pretty biased to me.

    So, what would you consider to be an unbiased news source?

    Of all the choices, PBS is the one channel I see more reports with (calm) multiple viewpoints (not the kind where pundits are shouting at each other and accomplishing nothing). Personally though, I get my news from all sources, everything from redstate.com to dailykos.com and everything in between mainstream and nonmainstream.

    However, I think we need FOX, MSNBC, google news, etc.

    I don't watch a lot of news on TV - I get most news online. More variety.
