Default FOXNews vs CNN

Face it. Both Fox and CNN cater to their audience base. Fox snips out anything that makes the right look back, and CNN does the same for the left. Neither is unbiased.

It's an interesting trend I've noticed over the months on these boards. In general, people on the left here expose themselves to many different types of news sources, whereas the right is so hung up on the witty idea of a "Communist News Network" that they refuse to watch it and are content to remain under the hypnosis that a steady diet of only FauxNews provides.

I guess you can't be wrong if you only watch programming that tells you you're right?

I prefer to stick with the National Enquirer, actually. That's where the "real" news is at. I mean, politics, war, blah blah blah! It's been done!

But a 1400 lb walrus-boy from Mars, now that's news!

I always try to use the BBC. I think they do the best at staying unbiased, but I mainly like them because it seems like most of the American media is over dramatized.

I'd agree with your last statement Max. I find you need to draw on several choices in order to get a remotely fair picture- otherwise it is really all spin. Gotta get the spins to balance each other out is all.
