My dear AUM you did not ask for civility to be part of the answer.

And shorebaby, thank you for the suggestion of Chris Wallace, although I think a lot of conservatives label him a liberal. He angered them once again this past week when he asked Bachmann if she's a "flake".
You asked for even-handed, not even tempered. Don't get mad at us because you weren't specific enough, we were just trying to help.

Almost anyone who was to try and be a commentator, as with frequent guests, so who are controversial, would at times get excited and/or yell. It's not as if O'Reilly is the only one who has done it.

But that's okay. There are better options out there than O'Reilly.
Like what?

FOX News shows are all fair.....even if the host lean right, they present a story and then have someone from both sides debate on a split screen. ALWAYS!!!

MSNBC does not do this!!

Even Hannity,,,,as anti-Obama as you can get, has his Great American panel every night. And it's always a mix.....heck sometimes he's got all Libs and he's the only one conservative.

Morning Joe is a great show and one of the best out there. While it's a republican leaning show, there are always a variety of guests and interact in honest, mature, intelligent discussions and not the hostile yelling, namecalling and other ignorance like you see at fox.
Meet the press is still decent and other sunday morning shows.
I'm also a big fan of Cenk from the young turks that also has a show on MSNBC in Schultz's old timeslot. He brings it every show and slams whoever deserves it left, right, and everything in between.

Wow... back atcha'

You gotta be kidding me.....Nothing on MSNBC leans right. Joe is a RINO at best all of his panelists are lefties except Pat Buchannan.

That's why FOX rules the roost.....they don't have JUST conservatives on as guests.

Hardball is the only show on MessNBC where the host brings in people of different views to debate.
