    Media and Talk Radio? Bias, leaners or fair

    Ive been doing a lot of research on this about 45days worth of polls, articles reading and watching reports and this is what Ive come up with and I wondered what peoples opinions here were. Being a centrist myself I find it interesting.

    Going off all the data I found this is what it came to on average:


    FOX = Far Right to Extreme Right

    ABC = Left to Right (found to have the widest range but never to much center)

    PBS = Center to Left

    CNN = Center Left to Left

    NBC = Left to Far Left

    CBS = Left to Far Left

    MSNBC = Far Left


    Talk Radio = Far Right to Extreme Far Right


    just curious what do you guys and girls think?

    If Fox was extreme right, I don't think they would allow any other opinions. Also I don't know what the difference between "far right" and "extreme right" is.

    I would say Fox is center-right. They can't be extreme-right when they have liberal commentators. Although Fox does have somewhat of a right-wing lean to it. It's a shame reporters can't report facts, they have to report facts as interpreted through their political philosophy first.

    Re: Media and Talk Radio? Bias, leaners or fair

    It depends on what we're talking about...

    Foxnews.com: Center to right (depending on the article / topic)
    Fox News daily news: Center right
    Fox News talk shows: Far right to extreme far right
    Fox News radio talk shows: Extreme far right
    Fox local news: Center

    Overall: Fox clearly is a right network. Most of the actual news IMO is closer to center, but when it comes to the opinions they promote through hiring these talk show hosts, it is clear that they are a right leaning organization.

    I don't really care though... the only time I watch, listen to or read FoxNews' media is just for the stories... I don't care much for the opinions.

    FoxNews.com articles are usually more interesting than most I read online, though I mainly stick to the main stream media.

    I would say change Fox to simply "Far Right" matching MSNBC and you're probably rather spot on.

    The country is so flooded with right wing media that there is no such thing as left wing media any more. Anyone that counters the right with the truth is considered far left. The range is from center to far right. All media today is only as "left" as their corporate owners let them be.

    I would say that:

    FOX = Center Right to Right.

    ABC = Center

    PBS = Center Left.

    CNN = Center (pretty much just straight news anymore)

    NBC = Center to Center Left.

    CBS = Center

    MSNBC = Center Left to Left.

    NPR = Center to Center Left.

    Talk Radio = Right to Extreme Right.

    Anyone that would describe Fox as Far or Extreme right does not know what Far Right is, and anyone that would describe MSNBC as Far Left does not know what Far Left is.

    Anyone that would describe Fox as Far or Extreme right does not know what Far Right is, and anyone that would describe MSNBC as Far Left does not know what Far Left is.
    Anyone that thinks Fox is not 100% republican (right) hasn't listened with an open mind. Even their "news" slams Obama and the democrats. I don't know how farther "right" you can get. MSNBC is labeled "left" because it exposes their lies.

    Go turn on PBS and discover left-wing media.
