You all confuse the "news" with "editorials".

Fox, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, etc, are only biased during their editorials. The news shows, where information is given instead of fact, seem to be spot on.... depending on what they want you to know.

True to a certain extent. But some of the stories they report on are frivolous. Of course, that could be because there is so much news now, that they have to find something to report on. But do I really need to know or even care that there is currently a car chase going on in Los Angeles when I am in North Carolina.

Actually, Venom is right...

Fox does have Napolitano AND Stossel. But I still don't watch Fox.

I'm somewhere between #2 and #3. I went with #2 because I typically trust them, I just don't usually care what they're talking about, particulalry when it comes to politics.

I can't really trust msnbc or fox at all.

the big 3's political shows on sundays are decent. Their news is ok.

I like PBS and NPR because they seem to be the only ones who have a true separation of news and commentary.

I think the online blogs are healthy because they offer a good balance when their always bickering. You find out what's bullshit from both sides.
