You can listen to CSPAN to hear what they are really saying than you can go to the networks and watch them all SPIN like a top!

I don't actually "trust" any network, but in my experiences FOX seems to do a fairly good job- although sometimes they are as biased as CBS.

They are all OK with me except for Faux News Channel which is clearly biased to the right. Even the weather on Faux News is slanted. They show the weather map in blue and red and say things like "and tomorrow God is really gonna blast the blue states with winter storms". And then when they show despots, they always put a (D) after their names- like they will show Saddam and at the bottom of the screen it will say "Saddam Hussein, (D) Iraq"

I agree but in the News world who is considered to be more reliable.

Cnn, MSNBC/NBC, CBS, Fox etc.

I watch them all but do find that Fox is a little tabloid to me. JMO

You mean like identifying Republican pedophile Mark Foley as a Democrat? They did the same thing with Larry Craig. Obviously Fox can't be trusted. I would rate MSNBC as the best, at least they point out the lies that Fox spews.

I like MSNBC with the exception of Joe Scarbourgh. I also like CNN with the exceptions of Lou Dobbs and Jack Chaferty.

BBC America. They report the news without having talking heads scream back and forth at each other like CNN, MSNBC and Fox ALL do. Also its nice to have a report that lasts more than 45 seconds and is geared towards people with a higher than 3rd grade education as compared all of the cable networks.

I like BBC America too but you have to keep in mind that it is still the BBC and being such they are going to look at things through a Brit point of view- just as Al Jazerra English does a middle eastern point of view.
