Zod rightfully called for a boycott of cable news a week or two ago. So last night, I was bored, and decided to perform a little experiement. I watched both MSNBC and Fox News from 8PM to 11PM, simultaneously on two TVs.

It was truly amazing how the two cable outlets reported identical stories from completely opposite angles, almost in unison. The story on Obama's trip to Europe was totally skewed far left on MSNBC and far right on Fox. They really need to strip the word "News" out of the names of these two stations. The fued between Maddow, Olbermann, O'Reilly, and Hannity is that of schoolyard legend.

My opinion, watch both and draw a line down the middle. That is where reality falls.

I recommend getting a better way to spend 3 hours.

Well, the options are limited when you're married with kids and the wife likes to watch Dancing with the Stars. I guess internet porn is an option.

the last time i watched tv news was election night. (maybe a few minutes of the inauguration).

i think all the shows like o'reily and olberman should have to show a disclaimer at the beginning and say "this show is intended to entertain and may not necessarily provide accurate information." might embarrass them into being responsible.

You're probably one of those doofuses who thinks wrestling is fake.
