Why do i always see those Media Matters clips from other blogs from so many of you left leaners? Blogs are blogs and they tend to work together to get out their story. I bet you don't think of HuffPo as a blog but their URL gives them away.
Your self-delusion is incredible, and I feel bad for you if you find it so important to desperately defend a channel that you refer to as background noise (this is also a blatant lie, you've made dozens of posts about "last night on Glenn Beck" and so on, telling people they should watch, etc.). I don't care about Media Matters or Huffington Post, nor do I visit either of those sites on a regular basis. Your constant defense of "blogs blogs BLOGS BLOGS" is pathetic, and completely besides the point.

It humors me when people constantly rail against George Soros while throwing money at Rupert Murdoch.

How much more straightforward does it get?

Feel free to add a reply giving yourself the last word. I'm done with this discussion.
Yes, you are such a middle ground person with very nice statements in other threads like...

"No, that's what a factual view of reality supports. As I said, enjoy your liberal bliss."

"Your posts paint you as a liberal. I really couldn't care less what you choose to call yourself." (Channeling Conservapedia there?)

"Where's your much touted liberal empathy (don't even attempt to classify yourself a Libertarian again. You're anything but Libertarian)?"

"Enjoy your non-discerning liberal bliss. I'll stick with basing my evaluations on fact rather than government fabricated fantasy."

I'm not even halfway down the most recent page too! If you want I can call the Waaaahmbulance with wahmburgers and french cries since you run away at the first sign of a logical argument that you can't BS your way out of. It was never a conversation, since you never at one point validated any claim.

After seeing Fox for about a month I had a heart attack and after 6 bypass surgery I had to spend about 3 weeks at home watching TV or reading. During that time Fox disappeared from my satellite program. My wife wouldn't let me pay extra to see the thing so I had to wait about a year and a half for DishNet to put them on the regular program. How much did I come to hate CNN? So much that I still don't stop there when switching around. I can see MSNBC on my son's TV but never waste my time since as my favorite blogger says, they should be called LSDNBC for their programming.

Since you see the bias in about 1 minute I bet you never watch Fox, at all, but do learn a lot about them from Media Matters. Am I completely wrong about that?
Frankly, I never visit Media Matters. I turned Fox off several years ago, it's programmed out of my channel line up so I never see it anymore except by accident. I turned Fox off locally after calling them on their outright lie during their news program. They hung up on me. I forget the issue but other stations were reporting the exact opposite and I took their story as true and believable. So, now when I'm forced to watch Fox at my parents (my Dad's story is similar to yours, sorry about your health issues) I still hear bias in every show.

I still contend that the left-ward lean on other networks is a response to the right-ward lean on Fox. So I blame Fox for the downfall of information in our society. It's not a good situation for anyone. Armed with the truth (something which doesn't have a side, it just is), Americans would be a formidable group.

I get my news from a variety of sources, some I believe most of the time, others I discount fairly quickly. The more the source blames someone else, the less credible it is.

I love the diverse guests he has on his show, but I hate how much he cuts off ALL guests. I want to hear more from the guests and less from him. But the show's format is too short I guess. I just don't see the variety of sides represented any better than Fox does overall. PMSNBC is 99% HARD left and they put one sacrificial semi-conservative out once in a while. PMSNBC is absolytely INSANE!

If you come from a certain viewpoint, you won't see it as skewed. Trust me, AP is basically written word for word by Obama's crew, PBS is very left. BBC is left, but probably straighter than most US lamestreams.

And FOX never told me any of that. It is from simply listening to/reading BBC, AP & PBS and seeing/hearing how they IGNORE certain stories and BEND the facts on others.

Do you have any proof? I can show you countless examples of Fox bias.

Yes, trust you...because you don't have a single fact to prove any of it.

That is because it's another...



Some people don't get how insanely stupid their view point is when it requires bizarrely contorted logic with the rest of the world to constantly working against them and spending insane sums of money. Instead of seeing they are the problem, and they are just wrong.

Which television news network provides the most accurate news and has the most politically diverse representation of guests on the opinion programming? I watch them all and Fox News has been the most accurate and they also have lots of people from the left on as guests, which I like as I want to hear how they can try to defend Obama's epic failures.
