Primarily ABC. I like the local broadcast, so most of the national "news" I get comes from their national inserts.

I maybe get half of my tv news from fox (the rest is a split between ABC local, ABC national, CNN, etc.) I get a significant portion of my news linked from Drudge and through the Advocate. I guess it I had to really proportion it out, I get about 20% of my news from fox (about the same amount I get from the advocate)

I honestly think Megyn Kelly or Greg Gutfield should take Hannity's place. I basically check to see who his guests are and what he is covering before I watch.

Hannity stays on something so long that he is like Days of Our Lives. Check in once a month and you're good.

How defensive some of you get. It's ridiculous.

Fox is about as fair as it gets, unless we are talking Hannity.



Saw Hannity interview J Lehrer last night; Hannity admitted that he could never be a 'neutral' moderator, because of his bias.

Hannity is to Conservatives (Capitalists) what Matthews is to Liberals (Socialists). Each promote their chosen ideology; Hannity with facts...Matthews with spin.

I swear Greg has a high-school kind of crush on Dana Perrino (on The Five). Sometimes it's funny, other times it's almost creepy.

Not me.. Fox just doesn't do it for me and neither does msnbc. I occasionally watch CNN and never watch network news anymore. Most of my news comes from newspapers, magazines and the Internet

ETA: my favorite news/info show is CBS Sunday morning, more fluff than actual news

I think I can say with confidence that 'The Five' is the worst show on any cable news outlets. God that show sucks.

1) Local TV news
2) Fox
3) Tigerdroppings
4) CNN

National network news - never
MSNBC - occasionally and momentarily - just for the laughs

I do. I still watch CNN or CBS news on occassion just to see what they are reporting, but I refuse to waste my time with NBC or the Kansas City Star or worse yet support them in any way.

Does this help you understand?


Pretty much what I thought. You pretty much listen to what you want to hear.

I think that describes a lot of people on this board.

I tend to stay away from opinion pieces, they generally only give the news that supports their opinion.

It good to know that you don't just troll the Rant and SECrant but other boards as well. It explains a lot of your posts.

Mommy didn't give you enough hugs did she?

Who doesn't? Do you intentionally listen to songs you hate to "keep an open mind"?

I've got 'news' for you: It doesn't matter who you listen to, you'll hear everything through the filter of your worldview anyway. Listening to people you disagree all the time makes you more of a mesochist than an "enlightened" American.
