    None of the above.Four liberal sources and one somewhat conservative source. Sometimes they are accurate and sometimes they are not.They are not fair or balanced. To get a balance one should get their news/information from multiple sources.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    None of the above. there are not many "unbiased" new organizations left, certainly none amongst the main stream media. So you have to note the personal bias of each network when considering their words.

    None of the above. Rush is a talk show host, not a news reporter.

    Re: Which source would you trust most to give accurate information?

    The first four choices all make an effort to be accurate, but I picked PBS as the *most* accurate. I know they have a great reputation. However, I get my information from BBC and CNN a lot more than I use PBS.

    We get the BBC channel here in DC. But I rarely watch television news; I usually get my news from the websites of BBC, CNN, or CNBC.

    None of the above.

    I sometimes listen to Rush Limbaugh's radio show, but I take things he says with...

    Well letís say several dashes of salt, not just 1 grain.

    And I donít watch TV news at all.

    Or TV, for that matter.
