    It's without a doubt one of the best papers.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    They are all biased. Each has an agenda. This has been a natural progression ever since the concept of infotainment. There is no objective informative news any more. If you want it you have to search for it.

    I like CSPAN - and watching live some of the hearings and processions. Of course, yes it is rather boring but I'll take that over any of the hyperbolic ranting or smarmy opinon shows.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Agreed sir. I know a lot of conservatives would disagree with me but the last time I watched C-Span was when Bernie Sanders talked for god knows how long, **** was epic.

    The AP is biased too just not as much. You have to use dubious sources from time to time but it becomes easier to filter the spin after a while. I mean some sources you just completely discount and only listen for the entertainment value, as there is nothing else of value present...Matthews, Hannity, O'Reilly, Maddow etc.

    More of a wire service than an actual media news outlet.

    The AP may be biased. But the question is which is the most fair and balanced news outlet, and least biased I feel are the wired news services.

    Isn't the poll most fair and balanced news service? I would think they count.

    Sad, but mostly true.....
    but there is always NPR and PBS....
    but the poll was set up by tea-bagging conservatives, the same who voted overwhelmingly for Fox.
