I get my NEWS from Fox so that means I watch Fox for news about 30 minutes a day . They don't report much news. It's mostly opinion.

People keep saying this, but this happens EVERYWHERE. News networks show their opinions by the very news they choose to report and by the news they choose to ignore.

This.

There isn't THAT much "news" coming on the cable networks

The only opinion show I watch with even remote consistency is AC360.

I'll tune into Maddow/Shultz/Matthews for the lulz when big stuff happens (Scott Walker, last Thursday's debate, etc...)

I read NYT, WSJ, USA Today and the Shreveport Times every day. I pay for the latter two. I get NYT and WSJ free from my girl friend, the barrista at Starbucks.

I read between 10 and 20 links off Drudge every day. Both left and right. I do not watch TV political news at all. In fact, I rarely watch TV.

I listen to 1 hour of Rush every day. Sometimes two hours. Rarely other talk radio... I'm especially fascinated with the stupidity of Coast to Coast...which has authors testifying that aliens have infected our minds.

I read back issues of National Review and The Economist on a 1 year time lag to see how things played out. They are always wrong.

First of all, network news is going to be "liberal" from the perspective of...say...someone in Louisiana or the south (which is where the bulk of GOP support comes), but for the general public, they're pretty close to the center. I do think it's probably fair to say that people who study and practice journalism are more likely (but certainly not exclusively) to be liberal than conservative. But having been around many professional journalists, I know it's absolute hogwash to suggest that the entire world's media (other than Fox) is a part of the vast left wing conspiracy.

Fox, is not just a network with slightly more conservative reporters than liberal reporters. Fox is an activist conservative news network. They are deliberately framing stories, editorial content, etc. for the conservative market segment. Fox is NOT simply the flip side of the coin of NYT, WAPO, etc. They've done one hell of a job convincing people that they are, though. With Fox you not only get your own opinions but you get your own facts, too.
You seriously don't see anything wrong with these statements?

88% of news media contributed to Obama.

When there are libs running the news, lib news is what you get.

I love Coast to Coast. I used to stay up late enough to listen to a couple of hours a week.

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.

That's why I said I don't listen to opinion pieces. I'll take the news and make my own opinion, thank you.

Caveat: I will occasionally watch the John Mclaughlin Group just cause it's so damn funny.

That's all part of the mind control. Do you also notice that all of the hosts have really deep base voices? Deep base? Does that mean something? We might not know. But the govt is obviously trying to hide something.

Overall the news just sucks nowadays.

This Pew Research Center report shows a downturn across the board when it comes to credibility of news organizations.

Pew Report on Credibility of Media



I also came across this chart in this report

Im probably close to 40% from Fox. I do about 40% from CNN and the last 20 is a combo if Drudge, Politico and Yahoo.

Pretty much. I get most of mine from internet sources. I suppose if you get a half dozen sources about a particular subject you may have somewhat of an idea what is going on. I don't trust any source to be 100% free of bias.
