TSB is heavily liberal...they hate Fox News and don't realize the inherent left wing bias of CNN or MSNBC? wow...what a surprise...shocking...i can't believe it...what a breakthrough

serious question for TSB:

do you all realize any liberal bias in any (non fox news) channels? or do you kind of view non fox news channels as the norm and fairly "down the middle"?

Pew Research Center for the People & the Press

Quote :
"The regular audience for the Fox News Channel continues to include more Republicans than Democrats. Currently, 39% of regular Fox News viewers are Republicans while 33% are Democrats; in 2006, the margin was 38% to 31%."

Fox News Channel Leads in 2007 Cable News Ratings

Quote :
"Fox News Channel once again ended the year as cable's top news network, followed by CNN, with few radical ratings dips or surges for either network. But among the channels with smaller audience totals -- MSNBC, CNBC and CNN Headline News -- 2007 was a year of growth.

For the year in primetime, Fox News was the No. 6-ranked cable channel behind USA Network, TNT, ESPN, TBS and Lifetime Television. That's two notches higher than its ranking last year. CNN, its closest news competitor, was No. 26, down one."

I think everyone here would say I'm fairly liberal... I watch Faux News a lot of the time just because it's more entertaining. I can get the same news, but it can be fun to see how stupid a lot of the pundits on that channel are and I am capable of seeing through their bullshit (as I can see through the bullshit on other networks too). I think a lot of people are like me.

i managed to watch keith olbermans show last night, and the bitch's show the followed


i cant believe people actually watch that and take them seriously

even oreilly presents both sides (for the most part) and is well versed on the issues at hand .. but damn, olberman was off the wall ... he sounded like the annoying drunk guy at the bar by himself trying to start arguments with everyone around

at least he doesnt hide the fact hes liberal

yea how dare someone call out liberals and rant about them on television .. .thats pure evil right there


he had ralph nader on last night and he agreed with him on almost every issue, he fairly interviewed obama and slotted 2 nights for him ... the day olberman has mccain on there and legitimately interviews a conservative... well, that will never happen

as much as i hate Fox, they aren't really trying to hide where they stand. unlike the majority of the media who pretend they're in the middle, and might even THINK they're in the middle, but are really left of center. i don't know which irritates me more. so i just get all my news from TWW

My take

Obviously FOX is biased. I dont even think they make a serious attempt to show otherwise.

MSNBC, jumped the shark a few years ago after Olberman saw his rating explode we he went off on president Bush. Basically, MSNBC in primetime is clearly biased with Olberman being the worst but MSNBC in the daytime is pretty straight and so is MSNBC.com

Though I will say that MSNBC does have Pat Buchanan and Michelle Benard who are two of the most thoughtful right leaning pundits on TV. Of Scharbourgh is there two but I think he is two steps away from flipping democrat.


CNN I think does its best not to be biased. They hire only the absolute nerdiest, goody two-shoes people to work their shows which almost guarantees that they will be liberal but the basic outline of the reporting attempts objectivity.

I don't see how you can say Scarborough is a Democrat when he was a Republican congressman. That just means he chooses to use his brain in order to see how bad Republicans are right now.

uhhh, the channel's slogan is "Fair and balanced: We Report, You Decide", and their most popular show claims that his show is "the no spin zone". Of all the news channels, Fox News is the one who most tried to pretend they're unbiased.

i agree, i don't think they're even trying.
But they still repeat "fair and balanced" dozens of times a day, so clearly they want people think they're trying

I honestly don't know where you're going with this......

Yes, fine, rephrase my statement again, and I guess it's still true. But are you trying to use that as some kind of excuse or rationalization for what they do?
Fox News (and most other "news" stations) are contributing to and profiting off of the dumbing-down of America with blatant anti-intellectualism and unencumbered doublespeak.

I know that all of this is in pursuit of the all-mighty dollar, and it's obviously working for them because so many people buy into it, but that doesn't make it right or excusable.

I often wonder how far TKEshultz is from reality.

I think he's gone off the deep end.

During the Wright fiasco, every single news organization was investigating it. CNN, NPR, and MSNBC have all been running reports about Ayers as well.

The only reason Fox News keeps hammering on this shit is because their job is to help out the GOP candidate in any way they can.

To quote that douche from Fox and Friends:

"This..... is...... HUGE!"

i've gotten this email from two family members (in-laws) who also think Fox News is a god send


Quote :
"Watch Sunday Night. FOX News @ 9PM

SEAN HANNITY, OF HANNITY & COLMES ~ IS GOING TO AIR A VERY
IMPORTANT DOCUMENTARY ABOUT BARACK OBAMA, SUNDAY NIGHT AT 9:00 PM. HE STATED
ON THE AIR THIS EVENING THAT NO ONE IN THE NEWS MEDIA WAS WILLING TO DO THIS.
HANNITY IS GOING BACK TO OBAMA'S EARLIER DAYS, SHOWING EVEN THEN HIS TIES TO
RADICAL PROFESSORS, FRIENDS, SPIRITUAL ADVISERS, Etc., HE STATED THIS EVENING
THAT HE WILL SHOW IN DETAIL HIS TIES TO REV. WRIGHT FOR 20+ YRS (which we all
know) HOW HE WAS PARTICIPATING WITH THIS MAN, AND NOT FOR THE REASONS HE
STATES! HE HAS UNCOVERED MORE OF OBAMA'S RADICAL LEADERS AND WE WILL SEE
THINGS THAT NO ONE IN THE MEDIA IS WILLING TO PUT OUT THERE. THIS WILL BE A
NIGHT THAT YOU WILL KNOW MORE ABOUT OBAMA THAN EVER BEFORE. HANNITY IS VERY
PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM AND ASKED THAT EVERYONE PLEASE, PLEASE WATCH~~
SUNDAY NIGHT, 9 PM.

HANNITY IS DETERMINED THIS INFORMATION BE PUT OUT THERE BECAUSE AS
AMERICAN'S, WE STILL DO NOT KNOW ABOUT OBAMA!! WAKE UP AMERICA !! THIS IS
SERIOUS,EVERYONE. I KNOW MOST OF YOU WATCH FOX NEWS, AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE
VOTING FOR, BUT IF YOU CAN, PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. THIS IS
CRITICAL FOR OUR COUNTRY. MY PRAYER IS THAT WE, ALONG WITH SEAN HANNITY, WILL
REACH SOMEONE/ANYONE BEFORE NOV. 4th.
WE MUST NOT GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!"


Because when I think of journalistic excellence, I think of Sean Hannity!!
