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 completely agree, 100 percent. I don't care what anyone says, both of these stations skew the news to a point that is ridiculous. It seriously makes me sick that people actually base their arguments of something they saw on fox.. or something they saw on MSNBC. I don't care if you are a dem or a rep, you NEED to get outside sources, and sadly, most people don't do that. I like BBC, and other internet sources for my info. BBC gives probably the cleanest perception out of all the outlets, while, I will admit, every station, EVERY station; has some kind of bias.
