I agree about MSNBC and I think that "Morning Joke" needs to be dumped. I like straight-forward reporting and even with MSNBC, I turn off the talking heads. It's just the same old stupid arguments and they are not worth watching. Olberman's show is terrific.

I also agree with fopt65 about BBC America. Sometimes I just want straight-forward info and BBC America is a pretty good source.

That's okay, because they present it from an INTELLIGENT point of view. Something our 24 hour OCD driven news channels can't.

To be honest, all the networks are on my last nerve. They seem to jump on one person for a while and then move on to another and jump on them for a while. The underdog usually gets the best treatment. IMO, the media wants this primary to linger on and on and on for their ratings. The math has not changed for Hillary much AT ALL after PA but the media will spin it as though they are neck and neck to keep people glued to the TV to boost ratings. Obama supporters know exactly what is going on and the fact remains, she did not make a dent in the biggest primary remaining. Lets see what happens in NC which could essentially wipe out her victory in PA. I have made a choice not to even watch the news channels since they are all to one degree or another full of hot air on many accounts. I will tune in May 6th to watch the results and probably with the volume down. I listen to my local radio show which is broadcasted throughout the US which have been so much better at pointing out real issues and facts. They don't spin illusions of nonsense like CNN and MSNBC. Fox? That Republican channel is never on in my house. I wouldn't waste my time and energy on that Channel for obvious reasons.

Olberman IS a talking head. He's on the EXACT same level of integrity as Hannity, O'Reilly, Matthews, or any other of the junk liars out there. The reason you like him is because his views tilt more to your angle. Thats the same reason some people like O'Reilly is that his views are more like theirs. Both of them are liars with no integrity.

I haven't watched ANY of it in 4 months. Me and the wife had our tv service disconnected. We decided paying for endless commercials, lying media, inaccurate weather, and low quality programming was a total waste and that if we took the $50 every month and set it on fire that we'd get more out of it.

Of course we didn't start setting it on fire, we need it to buy gas now.

Well, the worst is PBS, in my opinion. I'd have to go with CSPAN.
